The British Library He has been in charge of publishing the digital version of more than two thousand historical maps and creating a website with all of them located according to the place they represent, 2,236 wonders that can be found at www.bl.uk/maps/georeferencingmap.html.

We just have to click on the desired point and we will see the map with the description and the image, being possible to enlarge it to see the details on the web, with the same zoom options that Google Maps has. It includes the possibility of seeing 3D effects, although for this we have to have the Google Earth plugin installed.

The British Library gallery includes more than 30,000 objects from its collection, with an infinite number of books in digital format, exhibitions, virtual tours and much more content that is worth checking out calmly.

It is not the first resource related to old maps that I mentioned, in fact we have already talked about the David Rumsey collection, euratlas, the BBC map project and oldmapsonline, although it is always good to expand the list for fans of this type of content and for students and teachers of history who want to give a special color to their classes.
