Wageningen UR Library is digitising all maps of Wageningen UR reports on its new map scanner. All maps are stored in the e-depot and available to everyone.

The Library has already scanned over 1000 of the project's 3000 maps. The project is part of the Wageningen Bibliography. The Library is striving to collect and to digitise all publications of Wageningen UR. In most cases, the text of the reports was already online, but the accompanying maps were not.
So far, the maps from three report series have been scanned: the Alterra rapporten, the Mededelingen van de Landbouwhogeschool and the Verslagen Landbouwkundig Onderzoek.

Example, with the maps on the right side:
De bodemgesteldheid van het herinrichtingsgebied de Leijen - West / W.H. Leenders, F.Brouwer, 1992.
