Maps Viewing Equipment

Maps Light Table

The maps light table can be found in the alcove with the KIC scanner near the Suzzallo Elevators.  It is heavy and cannot be moved.

Using the Light Table

The Maps light table is used for viewing transparent or translucent maps and aerial photographs more clearly.  Simply plug it into the wall to use.


A stereoscope is a device for viewing a stereoscopic pair of separate images, depicting left-eye and right-eye views of the same scene, as a single three-dimensional image. The stereoscope is used to make a pair of adjacent aerial photos look three dimensional.

Requesting the Stereoscope

Ask at the GMM Desk on the ground floor of Suzzallo for use of the Stereoscope.  Someone will grab the instrument for you and show you how to use it.
