Abstract

In the late 1800s, Henry E. Huntington owned more than 60,000 acres of land in southern California, including thousands of properties in the burgeoning Los Angeles metropolitan area. Detailed maps of these landholdings are in today’s Huntington Library, but access is limited to scholarly researchers. A transparentization method was developed to overcome the shortcomings of the swipe and transparency tools. A web application was created to show the landholding of Huntington using tools that assisted the user in exploration and discovery of the past.
