Invite colleagues or the general public to help your institution add geocoordinates to your digital map collections. Hundreds and thousands of maps can be processed and located within days or weeks. Collected coordinates enrich your existing bibliographic records.


Maps are hosted on reliable hosting with a simple upload mechanism which is provided by Klokan Technologies. We need a spreadsheet with metadata to the maps and catalog records. Read more about requirements at
