Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

A new search interface with over 60,000 historic maps is now available online. It is a joint project between the Great Britain Historical GIS, Portsmouth University and Klokan Technologies. Current contributors include the David Rumsey Map Collection, the British Library, the Moravian Library, the National Library of Scotland and more collections are expected by the end of 2012 including the New York Public Library, Harvard University and more. The website is www.oldmapsonline.org/. This information was originally posted at: http://tinyurl.com/7zmkkde
