You can now use the Keweenaw Time Traveler! After a successful launch party last night at the Carnegie Museum in downtown Houghton, the Keweenaw Time Traveler is up and running. How do you want to Time Travel today? Check out our four apps here. The Explore App lets you browse old maps and search for people by name and address. This "Public Test Version" of the Explore App is still growing and will continue to improve. Right now you will find the most data in Hancock, but we will be adding more information over the summer for all the Copper Country towns. Keep track of what we're adding on this status page. You can also add your own stories!
Another way to Time Travel is to choose one of the Citizen Historian Apps. These ask you to record data from historic maps that computers can't read so that users like you have more information to explore in the Keweenaw Time Traveler. You can Document Building Materials, Document Building Use, or Transcribe the Map. If we all work together, we can make the Time Traveler even more fun!
Thanks to everyone who came out last night to help launch the Keweenaw Time Traveler. We hope you enjoy using it and we can't wait to see what you'll do with it. Get started here.
