You Are Here: Shifting Perspectives


Maps can transport us to different parts of the world. They not only provide us with a visual representation of the physical world but also offer a glimpse into the perspective of the map maker. The PCL Map Room, located in PCL 1.306, houses a vast collection of over 250,000 maps dating from 1900 to the present day and representing all areas of the world. 

Come to browse the collection and view a diverse exhibit of maps showcasing Austin and the surrounding area. Whether you're a student, a researcher, or simply a curious individual, the PCL Map Room is a must-visit destination that will expand your knowledge of geography and cartography. So come on by and explore the world through the eyes of map makers!


Visit the PCL Map Room and explore the world of maps!
