Il portale The Old Maps Online dà accesso a importanti collezioni di mappe e carte geografiche antiche digitalizzate (>> vai all’elenco delle istituzioni partecipanti).

Il progetto è stato finanziato dal JISC dal 2011 al 2013.

 

«The OldMapsOnline Portal is an easy-to-use gateway to historical maps in libraries around the world.

It 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.

OldMapsOnline has been created by a collaboration between The Great Britain Historical GIS Project based at The University of Portsmouth, UK and Klokan Technologies GmbH, Switzerland.

Its creation was funded by JISC».
