Old Maps Online

Launched yesterday (Feb 29th 2012), Old Maps Online allows the user to search for online digital historical maps across numerous different collections via a geographical search. Search by typing a place-name or by clicking in the map window, and narrow by date. The search results provide a direct link to the map image on the website of the host institution.

All copyright and IPR rights relating to the map images and metadata records are retained by the host institution which provided them and any query regarding them must be addressed to that particular host institution. Host institutions provide their own Terms of Use. Along with the links provided in the individual search results a general link to the maps section of the website of each host institution is also provided on the Collections page following each Collection description.
