Where we used to live – new website of maps from the past launched

Various authors, Eccos Revista Científica, Feb 29, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The interface probably works better if you're accessing this from somewhere in Britain; as it was, the display based in Moncton (which comes up automatically) left quite a bit to be desired. Still, as a cartophile of long standing, it's hard for me to be especially critical of an initiative that makes tens of thousands of old maps freely available to browse and enjoy. So I contented myself with looking at old country divisions in New Brunswick (still pretty much the same as they are today) and marveling that the railway here used to go right to the beach.
