The MDL team is passionate about improving access to data. Within U of T and with colleagues at other institutions, we are involved in a range of digitization projects that bring historical data out of print formats and make them usable for digital research. Our completed and ongoing projects include:
- Don Valley Historical Mapping Project
- Ontario County Map Project
- Canadian Census Discovery Partnership
- Historical Hydrography
- Lost Rivers of Toronto Map
