Old maps on Google Earth!


Google have released a bunch of old maps for Google Earth, they’re available now in your Featured Content layer. Just to give you an idea of just how awesome this is:

That’s the ‘World Globe 1790’ map. There’s a bunch of others that are country specific and very cool.

I’ve always had an odd fetish for old maps – unfamiliar maps in general, in fact. I think that’s what started me off reading stuff like Lord of the Rings and Treasure Island. So yes, maps are yay.
