Map
Map # 52. Androscoggin and Kennebec Rivers
Maine Historical Society, Map

This is an early map of the area commissioned by the Pejepscot Company circa 1720. Scale [1:316,800] 1 inch = 5 miles. Surveyors commissioned to lay out the plots of land for the Pejepscot company often had to do their work in the middle of winter to avoid confrontations with Native Americans. During this period three Indian wars were fought; Lovewell's War, 1722-1726, King George's War, 1744-1748; and the French and Indian War, 1754-1759.

Map #53. Brunswick in late Province of Mayne in New England, Jan. 28, 1718.
Maine Historical Society, Map

This is a very early map of the area around Brunswick, Maine, commissioned by the Pejepscot Company. Scale [1:7920] 40 perch = 1 inch. Native American sites are shown. The Pejepscot Company was formed at a time when the Massachusetts General Court was encouraging settlement and the laying out of townships in the "eastern country," which included the Province of Maine. It was the Pejepscot Company's intent to lay out "4 plats or towns" on their land. Brunswick, Topsham, Lewiston and Harpswell were laid out during the Proprietorship.

Animation depicting the 2003 iceberg flow in the North Atlantic off the coast of Maine
Science, Moving Image

The International Ice Patrol (IIP) continuously gathers iceberg sightings and compiles them into an annual database, effectively tracking the location of numerous North Atlantic icebergs. Since these icebergs intersect major shipping lanes, tracking them is essential for ocean travel safety. This animation not only tracks the speed and distance traveled of individual icebergs, but symbolically distinguishes their relative sizes by keeping growlers, bergy bits, and small icebergs small, while bigger icebergs are sized larger. Disclaimer: The size of the icebergs depicted are relative to one another, but not true to scale. Had they been true to scale, most would not be visible from this distance.
