The following is posted on behalf of Debra Hess Norris.  Please
contribute your collaborative photographic preservation projects to
the map.

A Google Map of World Wide Photographic Preservation Projects

This Google map is designed to record our progress in working
collaboratively and across boarders to preserve the world's
photographic heritage.  As a tool, this map is designed to inspire
and facilitate future international collaborations in education and
training, collection assessments, conservation treatment, research,
digitization and much more.

This map was first presented by Debra Hess Norris at the 2013 joint
Winter Meeting of the American Institute for Conservation
Photographic Materials Group (AIC-PMG) and the International Council
of Museums Conservation Committee Photographic Materials Working
Group (ICOM-CC PMWG) in Wellington, New Zealand.

Map Pin Keys for Types of Projects: Collaborative projects are
listed by city and country in the left column of the map.  By
clicking on one of the projects, the viewer is brought to that
location on the map and more detail about the project is revealed.
