Historical Maps of Bath
Bath is a beautiful city, full of beautiful Georgian buildings. Now it also has a beautiful historical map website.
I've seen a lot of historical map websites and History Map: Bath stands out as one of the better designed visualizations of old maps. This Leaflet.js created map allows you to view eight historical maps of the city, ranging from the 1500′s to the 1940′s.
The site allows you to view the historical maps on top of the modern map of Bath using a magnifying glass lens overlay. Alternatively you can switch to view each of the historical maps in full-screen mode. A map inset also provides a little information on each of the historical map overlays
