Sydney's Historical Maps

The Dictionary of Sydney has put on-line a collection of historical maps, The Atlas of the Suburbs of Sydney. The Atlas is a series of maps of Sydney created by map makers Higinbotham, Robinson and Harrison in the late-nineteenth-century.

You can view each of the maps overlaid on Google Maps by selecting the 'full record' link provided with each map (click on a map image, then select 'full record'). Once the map loads you can use the familiar Google Maps navigation tools to explore the historical Higinbotham, Robinson and Harrison map in detail.

Check out the application I made using Google Maps and Earth API, it is for historical maps in Niagara.
