Summer project map

I found this map of Edinburgh in 1825 that has been geocoded. I plan to see if I can discover the locations of some publishers and printers in Edinburgh during that time period. If I can, I will be using the exact, or as close as I can get, locations of these places to map them using StoryMaps and ArcGIS software. In doing this, I can get a clearer idea of who was in this industry and determine whether or not proximity had an effect on the printing industry and the partnerships between publishers and printers. I will also be able to see if all of these locations are in a certain area of the city. All of this will be overlayed onto a map of present-day Edinburgh so viewers will have a clearer picture of where this all took place.
