There has been an increasing interest in maps as image resources, and the need for geospatial descriptive properties. The idea of "place" connects with almost all resources, not just maps, especially in the humanities landscape. The IIIF Maps Community and Technical Specification groups have focused on use cases and active work in the community since the IIIF + Maps conference at Stanford University in early 2020. Join us for a showcase and discussion of geospatial issues in IIIF, including extensions for and use of the IIIF Presentation 3 API to support first class geospatial data. You will be introduced to members and projects in these communities as well as some of the technical aspects of combining geographic coordinates and IIIF resources.

This session will include the following demos:
• Ruscha Geocoding (Adam Heath, Ean Schuessler)
• ImagineRio (Martim Passos)
• Smapshot (James Taylor, Nicolas Blanc, Loïc Fürhoff)
• RERUM Geolocator (Bryan Haberberger)
• Leventhal Maps (Garret Dash Nelson)
• Chronoscope World (Matthias Müller-Prove)
• OldMapsOnline (Klokan Technologies)
