Old Maps shows over 250,000 high-resolution historical maps from 15th to 20th century.
Use the app to see your own GPS position on any of the maps, or just browse one by one from your couch. You can set up filters such as year from/to, scale, title or author.

Search the location by name, or simply zoom and pan, to get the most accurate results instantly. Scroll the bar with available maps and visit those you like. All maps are location-based and the app can display the relevant maps according to the place where you appear. Download the Old Maps now and enjoy a touch of history in your hand!

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

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.

Fixed and fantastic

I would ignore the older reviews, none of the negatives mentioned like trouble zooming and app crashes appear to exist anymore. I keep coming back to this app and haven’t had any problems with it so far. I look at lots of old maps and this is a much easier route to seeing them than digging around in a variety of websites. Good job devs - hope you keep supporting this very useful tool.

Links to old maps

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.
