You have only one more week to see our exhibit: Engraved in Copper: The Art of Mapping Minnesota at Elmer L. Andersen Library

The exhibit highlights unique engraved copper plates used to print topographic maps of Minnesota in the early 1900s, surveying and mapmaking techniques, and government documents related to the process.

The plates are part of the evolution of government mapping and the history of the United States Geological Survey, from early mapping efforts to Geographic Information Systems.
