Happy Geography Week! If you're interested in historic maps, then check this out! http://rumsey.geogarage.com It's an easy to use web map with a selection of David Rumsey's Historical Map Collection on an aerial view of the globe. Once you click on a map point, then you can click again and see the map on the current view of the earth as an overlay. Furthermore, you can play with the transparency of those maps as well. And as my friend Charlie would say, "It's possible with nuttin' but net!" No special software, no special skills, just crank up your web browser, navigate to this page, click and zoom!
