The past decade has seen a number of innovative mapping projects emerge, and some of these initiatives have also migrated to the web along the way. Recently, the Mouse Atlas Project (MAP) was released to great acclaim, and so far, a number of researchers have reported that they are tremendously satisfied with the results. Located at UCLA, the MAP is designed "to empower researchers with the ability to compare gene expression patterns with a conveniently accessible inventory of digital brain maps." It's an ambitious project, and visitors can learn more about the project on the homepage, and then begin to browse through the various atlases. To view some of the atlas volumes correctly, visitors will need to download the SHIVA software application, which allows interested parties to load and manipulate various 3D image volume file formats.
