Resources – Map Drawers

The Moraga History Center has a set of flat drawers where we archive large documents such as maps and blueprints. Digitizing these documents would appear to be a challenge but we have discovered that current smart phones can take high quality photographs that readily convert into high resolution pdf files which may not print very well but offer a lot if detail when zoomed on a computer screen. Each subject has been assigned a number and maps related to that number are stored in a drawer defined by a number range. We will selectively photograph the maps and make them available online as full resolution pdf files. Please refer to our Disclaimer to determine how you may make use of the content on our web site.
