Paris: City of Light

This site provides a map with the locations of composers’ homes, theaters, and important landmarks in Paris between 1900-1950. Additionally, it provides links to other pages in the City of Life website that detail specific information about public tourist attractions (this includes pictures, sound clips, and short films about the location). While this map uses different icons to indicate the type of location and provides general knowledge, the map uses no GIS system to link the icons to the locations; therefore, the overlay of icons becomes offset with the picture underneath if the page is zoomed in or out too far.
