Online trivia night is back! Test your knowledge and explore the streets, history, and artwork of Boston with the second installation of the Norman B. Leventhal Map & Education Center's free online trivia night, Thursday September 17th, 2020 from 7:00PM to 8:30PM.
This trivia event, hosted by the Leventhal Map & Education Center in collaboration with the Boston Public Library's Department of Special Collections, utilizes ATLASCOPE, a completely free online and app-based resource for exploring and browsing the Map Center's incredible digitized urban atlases collection.
The atlases appear as continuous, zoomable web layers, allowing users to pull up specific maps for all areas of Boston, and compare the current streetscapes with historical records to answer questions in a geographic scavenger hunt. Participants will also be challenged to discover the collections of the Boston Public Library and learn more about Boston's history, with winning teams receiving prizes.
