Interactive Historical Maps
February 26th, 2009

Just because a map may have been drawn with ink on yellowing paper and stored away for safe keeping doesn’t mean they can’t become interactive. The David Rumsey Map Collection has posted their historical maps online, and you can search them, zoom in and out and create widgets for posting the interactive maps on blogs or Web sites. It also allows you to create presentations with the maps.

The service has hundreds of maps and illustrations of New York, including this 1829 map showing Queens extending as far into Long Island as Oyster Bay.

    A ripoff.

    You can’t do anything without buying a ‘print’. You can’t download or zoom in. Cyou can’t see any detail.

    This site seems to be a huge advertisement for buying prints of old maps.

    Very disappointing.
