Education, outreach, & access to remotely sensed data.

Welcome to PennsylvaniaView

An AmericaView Partner

The Pennsylvania landscape is a diverse and rich environment for those interested in remotely sensed data. From its broad vistas of the ridge and valley province, to its rich farmlands and massive state park system, to its densely populated urban areas, the Commonwealth provides a unique setting for understanding the importance of satellite derived data and its role in decision-making and education.

Pennsylvania Underground Mine Map Atlas

Coal mining has occurred in Pennsylvania for over a century. The maps to these coal mines are stored at various public and private locations (if they still exist at all) throughout the commonwealth. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Active and Abandoned Mine Operations (DEP) is involved in many projects dealing with historic and active mine map restoration and digitization. The DEP has tried to preserve the historic information contained on these maps by scanning the maps into a digital image.
