Abstract: Students and faculty at Michigan Tech have invented a way to travel back in time. "What we're really hoping is that is that it can inspire new kinds of community partnerships between individuals,” says MTU assistant history professor Sarah Scarlett. The Keweenaw Time Traveler might not be science fiction, but as of today it does allow residents to see into the past. The project uses software and georeferencing to layer current and historical maps linked to historical data sets.
