Afriterra: The Cartographic Free Library

The Afriterra Library embraces a non-profit mission to access, preserve, and apply the cartographic record of Africa, enabling broader interpretation and transformative education.

The needs of education are rooted in the principles of Focus and Visualization.

Our method is cartography, and our commitment stands on deep content and broad access.

This resource is achieved by cataloging, digitizing, and displaying more than 5,000 of the rarest historical maps focused on Africa. The content spans over 500 years, covering all regions and scales, in 8 different languages, by 3000 unique creators.

This platform efficiently delivers at once a thorough archive from multiple primary sources previously scattered and sequestered throughout the world.
