What did the Delta look like 200 years ago? See an interactive map of the historical habitat and present day landscape, as well as the old photos, maps and journals used by historical ecologists to answer that question.
This interactive module has over 20 different maps and perspectives to show both the physical and human geography of a particular environment. As the delta's ecosystem has been failing, the importance of understanding the interconnections between people, places and our environment becomes all the more critical.
