The Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library is the steward of the library's world-renowned collection of over 200,000 historic and contemporary maps and 5,000 atlases.

Media Plexus fully developed the new website which is rich in content, visually compelling, and uses leading edge technology. Users can search by multiple criteria, and zoom into minute detail of high-resolution maps (using Zoomify Beta technology). Educators can search for resources by education level, topics, ideas and skills. An easy-to-use, robust content management system "ingests" maps and metadata. The Map Center currently receives tens of thousands of unique users every week, who visit (on average) for 8-10 minutes per session. Also developed an acclaimed "Boston & Beyond" touch screen kiosk interactive presentation, used for PBL exhibition.
