Old Maps Online

14 Mar

“The world’s single largest online collection of historical maps launched earlier this week at Old Maps Online. By the end of the year, the site aims to have 60,000 maps available for public access.”

“Each historical map you click on is presented in a separate frame that you can enlarge, drawn from the contributing institution.

A search box allows you to navigate by place name.”
