Likenesses Within the Reach of All is a project of the A.S. Williams III Americana Collection and the Alabama Digital Humanities Center. It is built using Google Fusion Tables and Acumen, a digital archives explorer developed by Will F. Jones at The University of Alabama. The maps and visualizations built in Google Fusion Tables use the metadata from Acumen to show the geographic spread of the collection’s images and to highlight some of its key features.
