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
What's New in Version 1.0.5
New iOS (PhoneGap) update.
Maps are good
Some of the older maps were blury, I don't like there is not a option to get rid of ads and the gps is not even close to acurate on most of the map but it is nice to be able to have access to so many maps over such a broad history of time of anywhere I want.
This is very useful for genealogists. I wish it was able to line up the lat/long with current maps so it was easier to find specific places on the map. I also wish there was a way to save a cropped image of the map out.
Hard to overlay maps
Please make it easier to overlay maps and see where you are on the maps.
