CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The online West Virginia Encyclopedia's mapping feature has been upgraded to make maps more interactive and more article-specific.
The West Virginia Geological & Economic Survey in Morgantown provided a $21,094 grant for the project.
West Virginia Humanities Council executive director Ken Sullivan says in a news release that the upgrade has expanded the encyclopedia's mapping capabilities for educators, students, librarians and the public.
The council launched the encyclopedia in 2010. It contains 2,300 articles, multimedia, quizzes and an opinion poll.
