New historical Detroit interactive maps

Dowtown Detroit now has historical and cultural data about buildings available to view and to interact with online at

Detroit-based technology and mapping firm Naviciti brought together data from a variety of different sources and made this available for public view using an interactive online mapping system incorporating aerial and ground-level photography from several eras.  Coupled with aerial photographs from 1949 and the present day, as well as current illustrated maps and 3-D imaging, the site enables visitors to readily see the changes that have taken place in the urban landscape over the successive decades.
