Visualising Urban Geographies

New dynamic maps of Edinburgh are now online through the National Library of Scotland’s collaborative Visualising Urban Geographies project with Edinburgh University. Included are 16 geo-referenced historical maps of Edinburgh from 1765-1940. They can all be compared together in Google Maps with present-day maps and satellite images. NLS have also created a 3-D representation of Edinburgh’s growth from 1450 to 1900 in Google Earth.
