Odds are, your local community has at least one, if not several historical societies, and OHM has all the tools to help them get off the ground with building old maps of their communities of focus. This session will cover the Historical Society Mapping Kit - a set of materials and tools any historical society can use to understand how OHM can help them achieve their historical mapping goals and how to manage team-wide projects.

No recording is available from this session.
