Now the Yale University Public Humanities program, working with a National Endowment for the Humanities grant, has launched Photogrammar, a web-based platform that assists in organizing, searching, and visualizing the historic photographs. The Photogrammar platform allows one to search through the images by photographer and, via great interactive county-level maps, by place. Additional tools are under development.
The Photogrammar project was funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). The project's principal investigator is American Studies professor Laura Wexler, director of the Photographic Memory Workshop; co-directors are Lauren Tilton and Taylor Arnold.
