Hundreds of thousands of historical maps have now been scanned and made available on-line by libraries around the world, and this has been a great boon to anyone interested in the history of cartography. Despite this fact it is hard to find scanned maps covering area of interest in the large number of online catalogs, library systems and web presentations on the web. The traditional fulltext search engines, such as Google, is failing to index the scanned maps properly. Old Maps Online is a search system tailored just for historical maps. Pick a location on a world map, or type in a place-name, narrow the search by selecting a date range. A listing of all possible maps covering that location appears, ordered by best geographical match. Select a map, click on the link and you go directly to view the map on the original library’s website. You don’t need to know who holds the map, just where in the world you want to look at. This system is designed to complement rather than compete with libraries' own search interfaces. The system is powered by the enhanced version of the MapRank Search technology and indexes over 130.000 scanned high-resolution maps already. Many major collections in the US, UK and elsewhere have agreed to contribute: The British Library, Harvard Library, National Library of Scotland, David Rumsey Map Collection, Dutch National Archives, Moravian Library, New York Public Library, Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library, National Library of Australia, etc. Our aim is to include as many collections as possible, so map libraries and collectors are encouraged to participate. To be able to index the scanned maps geographically, we must be supplied with minimal metadata (title, creator/publisher, date, identifier, and a stable url), plus geographic coordinates for the area covered, for each map. We can suggest/provide tools you can use to create the coordinates. One of the tools is the Georeferencer online service, which allows rapid collaborative georeferencing, 3D visualization, annotation and accuracy analysis of scanned online maps directly in a web browser environment, without the need to install any software on a local computer. The online visitors can help with the metadata enrichment and georeferencing of the scanned maps - and they are motivated with competitions, rewarding, community participation and recognition during this crowdsourcing effort. The Georeferencer service is applied in several institutions such as the British Library (London), the Moravian Library (Brno), the Nationaal Archief (The Hague), the National Library of Scotland (Edinburgh), and the Institut Cartografic de Catalunya (Barcelona).

Last of the stock Iowa clerk account technologies will be presented to the today to of power projects 1 is called old Songlines the cost base of the skull gyrotrons or sometimes
is a project that state data during the you gave at the University of Portsmouth its basically would the names of its such a collection of old met and it's and online or intended for general intimate users will now sure you would be the facing a shot as can see what it looks like and what it does so here is the is the
website This Britain much it can it needed by the at which serves as such in the face euro zone and them and on the map as you would on Google Maps or something similar and on the outside the interface musical text for what you see on the man who give you a list of from the collection of debt cover in the same area that you European you can find a place names like London here you get maps of London and Manuel move around the least dates the PM the Blue rectangular disease that is the query woman books that so
the for the search can also specified said and you can
browse through the list of results you can see more information about the man who can go from the Lorelei's and you
can also go to the 2 and a new age had gives the for presentation for the man and there you can picture in look and the for a solution picture the yet BP P Burke
could this so called 1 it's of its search engine for mad basic rate at you'll you find the the area that you are interested in and you can it is it is not just a surgeons and its more like a also you can just go to the database and start looking out what you want to see what during the day and you can also give it time and skills suitors if you are interested in maps from a certain area of all 4 of us of the scale of some specific time period candidate the social food Dykstra so you can look for a maps of specific publisher or some place names to interested and and the list of results on the right is the order of the day by German BigSim retained the going your doing so it will put on the top of the list those meant that the match the most to the area but you looking at it's bottomed because the automatic the maps of the world world they cover everything right if you just ask for the section you get the most out of a sense occurred results if I'm interested in London item to see the world so that it's in order and the important fact is that it is immediately that last annual Ben around to immediately series of that sold them the user protection data in this collection come from libraries and from around the world around 300 thousand 130 thousand meant right now but there are growing and as I've said its assertion we don't still debate that we don't really get it for ourselves to be just linked to the origin of sites and so we basically provides services to build institution most of these days situations that are currently in the system but so how would implemented it
uses may bring search technology that 3 developed and use for several other projects as well we Cyclades
a database collection of forgot next month it can be anything else was Citkowitz the German we bought them from a long text along by in the old its online and other systems the also associated with the data with the reduced across the summit but it is inspired by Dublin cost and but it became also provide a tribute kinds data for Customs purposes and as I've said the group could be used to buy the balmy walks of a new Ice the database for something you owe is used in the bombing books that specifies the context the during the the place on the pitch and interesting think it's a basic earlier presentation technology its intended for the bought was that are used by many people at the same time so that has to be Foster of demise for searching not for storing but it's not really a database is basically an index there are some some comprise is that you have to make if you want such speed for example into only the did the database filed you have to create every year degraded again every time you change but the at so we have must a database of records and we recreates this great only database every night when they were and update its English independent file for meant for expressed the we just met the file to memory the key word for anyone interested in databases is to walk the line a bit compressed but not indices sounds crazy but it basically of Britain's technique for foster indexing of fast such as and its used in late rousing stuff like that and what really of different about this from As competitor under the latest actress the response time for the great is independent on the bombing books that said if you bedazzlement if you ask for whole world or of London or of your health it will over issue should Owais and in the same time to the 11th results and and in-order by because issues quote 3 or something could but special in his problems the world not because if you ask for for some smaller regions of extending the body had the huge maps and the might of the results at the bottom and the
infrastructure side of it and as far as last July application Linux the euro queries conform to the open search and the and the results are in Jason so basically you can use it as a regular arrest a day on the beach but the baby at the Kalandek do you saw the using to face is the written just we use the Google closure tools for just trip to comply and the date you in the face meant it can be Google Maps all openers free or if we don't care where it can be something doesn't are the UK came sell if you want to get your data into or online and the hope of some of the more free want that you as ice said the you have to give Geometries for each across the data has to be during France but the these are old that Friday belonged to libraries and would be do is basically the big the paper nets and the the digitising they Photobition basic so attribute image and then they put the image on the right side but that's not the man to lead the jurors France and Italy where it is thought that prowess held you do that you have a service for the 1st got your friends the right now it's
intended for libraries and has a large collection and gives them away to Jewish friends the data Michael saucing by using General Public are doing that uses the group of roadside they get interested and they do the job advancing the library gets juror friend of it and their users with some friendly competition and don't nice Chinese things to look at the this work is sponsored by more than library research predicting that you could public yet again the size some institutions that of orange and it fencing with us how does that work basically uses gold to the institution upside they have large page with the Fawcett Bach and usually about them that OK I'm interested in the game me some led to injure friends the Greek doing and they get to enter face or a day at the uncontrollable and and that plans to of this is that it's really we try to make it as easy as possible so you don't have to be a walked in issue of a new of creating the jurors friends we ask you to again after words but even then you don't have to if you don't be just for the year Francis and on animals and then ask someone else to look at it and say about his name so you don't have to to give anything we still the fully history of all and its of all versions so but there is no problem like somebody comes in on the stories dogs and that someone else did we owe a straw only the changes so I know exactly what kind and was acquitted control weekend designate Samuels usually employees of the institution and they can go through the Jurf and his wife tried and and then those with a high versions of 2 X Xbox and this is what it looks
like a sustained your friends in the face the was based on the right and the skin in each of the last the user great Scotland from control Points and then they save the or and if there is the gun here from the public institutions they will go immediately from the to a free visualization to give them something very summary law that made it sound work and they want to look at it so that the 2 banks and usually the library of creating a Brogel page for days there several Brovaz by that's a home in a match that although the France how many are still in the queue the latest of the continued where people can look at it and hope they will get their computer based in sentencing competition for the right so well below the

again we don't still later we you don't have to uphold the the files anything we use of public image the risk that the only exposed by the libraries and England there so we support the whole off in which the for met 3 of them here but we have more the only image data that restaur are small town meant that display but mentally that its associated with this match is basically the same as in the Frank so if you have a successful your friends seemed project in your friends if we can just exploratively that and create on the brink visualization for
