The Museum of Chinese in the Americas wanted to find a way to display objects from their archives to museum visitors. The solution was a dual-screen museum installation that linked an archival database of museum objects with a 3D map of Chinatown in New York City.

Created before technologies like Open Street Map and Google Maps existed, the project was a unique technical challenge, involving linking a bespoke Flash-based interface to the 3D mapping software. Technologies used included: ActiveX, C++, Flash, ActionScript, Apache, Perl, MySQL, Windows NT and Linux.
