This por­tal grew out of a 2013 project by Swiss com­pany Klokan Tech­nolo­gies and the Univer­sity of Portsmouth’s Great Bri­tain His­tor­i­cal Ge­o­graph­i­cal In­for­ma­tion Sys­tem (see www2.port.ac.uk/re­search/gb­hgis). The re­sult is this easy-to-use search en­gine and in­ter­ac­tive map that boasts his­toric digi­tised maps drawn from col­lec­tions from all over the world. UK part­ners in­clude the Bri­tish Li­brary and the Univer­sity of Manch­ester’s map col­lec­tions. The free Old Maps On­line app for iOS and An­droid works well, al­low­ing you to search for an area and view the dif­fer­ent maps avail­able.
