Keweenaw Time Traveler

The Keweenaw Time Traveler is an online interactive historical atlas that is changing how we learn about, share, and research the history and heritage of Michigan’s Copper Country. Covering the years 1850-1950, it includes over 6 million variables about the built, social, and industrial environments of the region. Users can explore demographic data on the residents on historical maps, search historical placenames, and query map data. Tools allow users to tell their own spatial stories of the region and contribute to building datasets through transcription and classification activities.
