Open Steam Punk Mapping

Liminal Editions is the rip-roaring fictional tale of Alfred Ward Swan's attempt to build a Pneumatic Tube Transit System beneath the streets of Queen City in the 1890's.

The story uses OpenStreetMap with historical maps (of Burlington, Vermont), illustrations and photographs. As you scroll down the page the narrative unwinds and the map pans and zooms to the relevant locations in the story.

The tale was developed by Meghan Dewald, Trisha Denton, Bill Morris, Gahlord Dewald and Brett Chalupa for StoryHackVT.
