New website of maps from the past launched

The broadest single collection of historical maps from around the world is now available online.

The site, described by its creators as "like Google for old maps", will act as a central repository to a vast collection of maps held by institutions across the globe. It is the first time that access to such an extensive collection has been made available online, making it easy to find and compare maps through time in a highly visual way without the need for specialist knowledge. The service, hosted by the University of Portsmouth, launches with over 60,000 maps which will double by the end of the year.

Visit Old Maps Online to search maps by place, date or collection. Find other JISC content sites.
