Unearthing St. Augustine's Colonial Heritage: An Interactive Digital Collection for the Nation's Oldest City

A consortium of 18 cultural organizations that would create an interactive online collection of 11,000 primary resources (including maps, drawings, photographs, documents, and digitized objects) related to colonial St. Augustine, Florida, in preparation for the 450th anniversary of its founding.

The University of Florida proposes to build an interactive online collection of key resources related to colonial St. Augustine, Florida. Along with the UF Libraries, Unearthing St. Augustine partners are the two City of St. Augustine departments (Heritage Tourism and Archaeology Program), historic Government House in St. Augustine managed by UF, and St. Augustine Historical Society. Since the 1970s, research in St. Augustine has elicited attention from scholars in history, archaeology, and historic preservation throughout Florida and the US. Efforts to protect and promote its historical importance have been ongoing since early in the 20th century. UF and its partners will establish for the first time a computer digitization lab at Government House which will be used create and disseminate an interactive digital collection of 11,000 maps, drawings, photos and documents available freely online; and, spatially enhance maps and images through geo-referencing.
