Connecting collections of important maps, historical images, and documents, our research team will also be gathering newly created digital imaging and 3D models of the current landscape, allowing for comparisons and research on how past and present come together. Building records, documents, images, and block level details will be shown referenced to modern day location, allowing for a digital exploration of Tampa from its early foundation through modern development. 3D mapping and imaging will allow for interactive and immersive experiences of select locations. The project will also include a citizen scientist component that will encourage community involvement and submission of images and relevant materials to help increase our documentation efforts. Explore our project beginnings and participate with us on our journey to capture Tampa through Time!
