Oversize Color Images Project

From: Janet Gertz <gertz>
Date: Wednesday, June 28, 1995
Phase I of Columbia's Oversize Color Images Project, announced last
fall, is now complete.  Phase I took five original brittle maps from
the turn of the century, single frame color microfiche of the maps,
and color transparencies of the maps, and had several vendors scan
the three versions with a variety of equipment and at various
resolutions. The full text of the final report, and almost 300
images of the maps, are available via Columbia's Web server, at:

There is also a link from CoOL.

The project was funded by a contract from the Commission on
Preservation and Access and by Columbia University, as is Phase II,
which is now underway.  The goal of Phase II is to scan preservation
microfilm of the articles of which the maps are illustrations, and
unite the scanned text with the scanned illustrations online.
Further notices about progress reports will be provided as reports
become available.
