Historic Map Collection

2 3 4

For the first time since its launch in 1999, the website has been completely redesigned and updated. It features an integrated blog, comprehensive content management system, and many other map visualizing tools and features. Over 200 historic maps from the collection can be viewed in a new browser-based version of Google Earth and users can enter the Second Life version of the map collection directly from a dedicated portal page on the site.

All 21,000+ maps are licensed with Creative Commons and a new service from Pictopia allows purchase of reproductions of any map in the collection. Be sure to take some time and browse this amazing collection!
