New Map Viewing Interface for Historic Pittsburgh

We improved the viewing interface for the G.M. Hopkins Company maps on the Historic Pittsburgh website. Now the map plates can be enlarged and more easily navigated using the Zoomify interface. You can now zoom in on a map plate and drag it around to move within it. We also improved the ability to browse map plates from each volume. Users can now freely download map plate images as 200 dpi JPEG files for noncommercial and educational purposes.
