Map and Geographic Information Center

Today, I’m bringing you a site with an amazing collection of historical maps.

To start your journey, click the Flickr link under the featured section. This will whisk you away to the complete gallery of maps. What I love about this gallery is that you can also browse it by year and geographic location. In order to browse by year, click the year link under the featured section. To browse by location, click the geographic location under the featured section. 

Looking for someplace specific? Well then you can use the search engine at the top right of the page. For example, I typed in Scotland, clicked the Search button and it brought up an entire list of historical maps from Scotland. Then you just click the link of the one you want to view and you’ll be whisked to its location on Flickr. 

I just love maps so much! And historical maps like this make me so happy! If you like maps as much as I do, you should be warned that you will lose several hours at this site! Enjoy!
