The project OldMapsOnline began in 2012 and indexes over half a million of ancient, antique, vintage and old historic maps from prominent archives and libraries (British Library, National Library of Scotland, David Rumsey…). For more information, visit the website www.oldmapsonline.org

Ratings and Reviews
I have high hope
This is an amazing idea, that I truly find useful. It has improved since I last used it and I truly hope the developers bewhiskered it keep up the good work. I rate four stars because I have high hope they continue their good work.
No one else is doing this.

Working on a spy themed bachelor party on a budget.
This app is great for finding maps from different years and styles to use as clues with a James Bond feel.
Bonus, it even links to the digital image website where the map came from.
Great educational tool
Love the app but agree wholeheartedly with the other reviewers:
Ability to line up longitude and latitude
