Historical Map Overlays

Building Historical Maps

Amherst College are working on a mapping project called Cityscapes. Cityscapes is a tool to allow students to collaborate in their studies. I think the idea of the project is to create an application that students can use to easily add markers, photos, videos and other content to a shared Google Map.

Currently there are two working demos of the project:

Tokyo Demo
Paris Demo

The two demos allow you to overlay historical maps of Tokyo and Paris on top of Google Maps. The Tokyo demo is supposedly password protected, for copyright reasons, but I found just pressing cancel on the log-in worked for me ;)
