Over 1600 photographs documenting sanitation and public health projects funded by the International Health Board/Division of the Rockefeller Foundation in Latin America and the Caribbean (1920-1950) are mapped to the cities, towns, and countries where they were taken. Eustus H. Magoon served as sanitation engineer for these projects and most of the photographs are of a technical nature showing construction sites and processes, but many photographs feature people, buildings, living conditions and scenic views.

The map points are not exact for buildings and other specific features; the longitude latitude algorithm creates coordinates based on the placenames in the metadata and are accurate for the location of cites, towns and countries.

The map was constructed with the Estus H. Magoon Collection dataset and Viewshare, a visualization project of the Library of Congress.
