Location Details

Map Controls

In this documentary, in the form of a satellite map, you can zoom in on the Lewis and Clark Expedition 1804 through 1805 from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean. Unlike most maps, this map enables you to digitally experience the expedition and zoom in close on each location while you read their actual journal entries for each date and location. By activating the 3D terrain mode, and using the compass to rotate and see the horizon, you can view the map with mountains that you can zoom in on in order to understand how Lewis and Clark viewed it and the difficulty of their travels.

The locations in this map were determined from the following sources:

• The actual Lewis and Clark Journals at https://lewisandclarkjournals.unl.edu/ • A series of maps found at the Missouri Department of Natural Resources
