The New York Public Library recently started something called Building Inspector, an interactive map application to chronicle the changes New York City has seen over time. For years The New York Public Library has collected maps documenting the ever-changing city. The new Building Inspector app allows users (“citizen cartographers”) to extract, correct and analyze data from historical maps. The goal is to produce a comprehensive directory of old New York.
