Cool Detroit website alert

Launched a little less than a month ago, Detroit 1976 is a great new site put out by Naviciti, the Detroit company behind the easy-to-use Map Detroit. Like Map Detroit, the site has an interactive map – but the cool part is, it’s a map of Detroit’s central business district (CBD) in 1976.

There are loads of other cool features, such as the ability to see aerial images of the CBD from as far back as 1949, but rather than regurgitate the post I just wrote about, check it out here.

    Not too bad of an attempt, but the site is plagued by the same issues mapd has, bad navigation, picture size is bad as well.

    You can download the raw image files from aerial photos all the way back to the 1940s from DTE/Wayne:
