Campbell County Government is excited to unveil a new interactive map featuring Campbell County historic photos and information. Developed jointly by the Campbell County Rockpile Museum and Campbell County GIS, this project connects the public with the history of this county and region by highlighting some of the locations featured in the Rockpile Museum’s historic photographs.
“This story map deepens the understanding of our history by connecting the stories and photos with a place,” says Museum Registrar Robert Henning. “There are historic places and sites all around Campbell County that are little known or long forgotten. Our hope is that this map can help residents understand that the landscapes around them have stories to tell.”
The Campbell County History Map features 43 historic photos and locations in every corner of Campbell County and a few just outside of our political boundaries. Henning’s goal is to add more locations to the map over time, and possibly discover other landmarks or locations that the public knows of but may not be represented in the museum’s collections. County GIS Coordinator, Cathy Raney GISP, says this story map is a fun way to interact with maps and data about the county. “We will be creating more of these story maps in the near future as we strive to share more information about Campbell County and Wyoming with residents and visitors.”
The History Map can be viewed on a computer via the Rockpile Museum’s website at www.rockpilemuseum.com by clicking on the Story Map link at the top of the page or by using this link: http://gis.ccgov.net/RockpileMuseum/index.html. It also has an integrated mobile interface for web-enabled tablets or smartphones.
