Public web availability of the "Detailed Map of the City of Kyoto" (Kyoto Prefectural Library and Archives)

From 2/2011 on, the Historical Geographic Information Research Group, in coordination with the Kyoto Prefectural Library and Archives, will conduct digitization and GIS-conversion of the “Detailed Map of the City of Kyoto”. From 7/1, part of the result will be made public on the web, as part of the Kyoto Prefectural Library and Archives` “Library of Kyoto Memories”.

The Library of Kyoto Memories can be found at: http://kyoto-shiryokan.jp/kyoto-memory/index.php
We have also constructed and made available a site that shows the position of each map item on the “Detailed Map of the City of Kyoto” on Google Maps, linking to images contained in the Library of Kyoto Memories.
Virtual Kyoto: the “Detailed Map of the City of Kyoto” can be found at: http://www.geo.lt.ritsumei.ac.jp/meisaizu/meisaizu.html
