It is the University of Alicante's online map collection, in which, the information has been classified in two large sections. On the one hand, you can find plenty of infornmation on on several map products performed by other institutions, such as tales web cartography, virtual bird's-eye view, statistic information, educational courses and portals, etc.; on the other, products prepared by the UA, such as a gepgraphical glossary and access to the photographs of Alicante province in 1956, known as "American flight", performed by the American army during the 1950's. The program to view these photographs has been completed with the option of comparing those images with current ones.
This is the first phase of this project, cofunded by the University of Alicante and ANECA, which will be completing with new contributions.
