Arcata Adds Historical Context to Its Interactive Maps
The City of Arcata Environmental Services Department is pleased to announce the launch of their Geographical Information Systems (GIS) Interactive Storyboard Maps.
The new GIS Interactive Storyboard Maps feature information where visitors to the City’s website can find a parcel or take self-guided tours to explore some of Arcata’s world famous locations and event sites, tour Arcata’s trails or take a historical tour of some of Arcata’s historic landmarks dating from 1850 to 1970.
The Environmental Services Department initiated the GIS Interactive Storyboard project within the last few months collecting photographs and data to complete this project. They worked in collaboration with the Wiyot Tribe, Humboldt State University Library’s Humboldt Room and librarian Garrett Purchio to provide culturally significant information and images to share with the community.
“I would like to thank the Wiyot Tribe, Garrett Purchio and City GIS staff Maggie Martinez and Brian Kang who have helped us with this project so far. This is an ongoing project for us, and we will continue to update our maps as we learn more historical facts about our City,” said Mark André, the City of Arcata’s Director of Environmental Services.
