We have updated our Find by Place - with Marker application, allowing all our online maps to be searched with a marker pin. The application now uses OpenLayers , so it is now consistent with our other web-mapping applications, and has several new enhancements. The bounding boxes of returned maps are shown when you hover over the map thumbnail in the Results panel on the right. The Results panel also has a clearer header, with details of the scales of returned maps and the date filter range.
A geolocation option has been added, so you can choose to display your current device location, and a wider range of current and historical base map layers can be selected. In the s and s, the original Ordnance Survey's One-Inch to the Mile Popular edition mapping of was re-issued with selective updates from revisions made primarily in the s. These updates include Air Raid Precaution revisions from , included on GSGS , and some selective updating of roads and railways from large-scale revision in the s.
Two of these series were officially published by the War Office Geographical Section, General Staff and carry their series designation numbers. These series are particularly useful for showing an overprint of the War Office Cassini Grid, often used for referencing places in the Second World War. Following completion of the digitisation of our Ordnance Survey National Grid , mapping in January, we have now put together a seamless georeferenced mosaic of midth century Britain based on these maps.
In some cases, these maps were basic updates from the pre-War county maps, with only selective revision for major change. However, where sheets exist that were based on large-scale revisions, or from a direct revision of the landscape, we have preferred these, as they give a better reflection of the real world. The maps show farms and settlements, roads and railways, rivers and watercourses, administrative and field boundaries, woodland and land use, as well as contour lines; buildings are generalised in urban areas but many street names are also shown.
This is the latest out-of-copyright mapping covering most of mainland Britain. The mosaic seams together 8, maps, and will grow in future especially in Scotland , as more sheets fall out of copyright over time. We are deeply grateful to Lovat Highland Estates , based in Beauly, and the North of Scotland Archaeological Society , for scanning and authorising the online display of a uniquely important set of over estate maps. The maps cover extensive areas west of Inverness, as far as Mallaig and Fort Augustus in the west and south, and range in date from the s through to the s.
Later significant map-makers were John Boulton and David Gordon fl. The maps depict all aspects of Highland estate management, including agricultural improvement, enclosure, drainage and embankments, the planning of settlements such as Beauly, the leasing of farms and grazings, the allocation of land for crofts, and land ownership disputes. The construction of new roads, railways, and bridges, and their development over time is also well-represented. After Ordnance Survey mapped Inverness-shire , OS maps were often annotated to show specific features relevant to the estate, whilst fresh maps were also drafted to show new subjects, including the expansion of hunting and shooting runs, and the growth and management of woodland.
Following the publication of the Ordnance Survey "Popular" edition ca. These include the Outline edition of the series, with water in blue and contours in red. Another variant series was the Outline edition with water in blue. In the s too, various water and contour pulls were made of the sheets for educational purposes.
These sheets just included the blue and brown lithographic pulls of the standard sheets. Our set of these were originally owned by Alan Ogilvie , first Professor of Geography at Edinburgh University, and they were subsequently donated to the Library in We have recently added all our out-of-copyright holdings of geological maps of Scotland online.
This includes a detailed set of six-inch to the mile maps , focusing just on areas with economically valuable geology, as well as less detailed one-inch to the mile maps covering most of Scotland. All the maps use Ordnance Survey topographic mapping as their base. On the earlier editions in the 19th century, the geology is usually hand-coloured, whilst for six-inch second and later edition maps in the 20th century, it is usually printed lithographically in brown. There are also a set of Horizontal and Vertical Sections. This German Army series is essentially a set of One-Inch Popular edition maps , captured by the German Army and reprinted in There was no revision of topographic detail, but the sheets were metricated, enlarged from , to ,, with updated German titles, marginalia and legends.
Our holdings are incomplete, with 70 of the original 92 sheets. The maps form part of the major intelligence-gathering project by the German Army as part of 'Operation Sealion', Hitler's preparations for a possible invasion of Great Britain. This military map series at , was rapidly completed in the early years of the Second World War.

The underlying topographic detail was photographically reduced from the latest available Ordnance Survey six-inch to the mile maps, and then usually overprinted with contour lines, enlarged from the latest Ordnance Survey one-inch to the mile maps. This is all our holdings of this series, consisting of sheets. Coverage of Scotland is complete, with a small number of sheets covering the Isle of Man and south-east England. This celebrates the year anniversary of the birth of African American activist and author, Frederick Douglass. Douglass first visited Edinburgh in and these maps take you to the places where Frederick Douglass lived, held meetings and gave speeches during his antislavery campaign in Edinburgh and Scotland, as well as the sites where other black abolitionists gave speeches in Edinburgh.
This addition of 5, Ordnance Survey , "double-sheets" ie. This was the largest scale post-War mapping to cover these rural areas, and it shows excellent detail of man-made structures such as farms, settlements and houses, as well as roads, railways and industrial works. The rural landscape of fields, woodland, lochs, rivers and streams is clearly depicted too.
These are the earliest OS maps to comprehensively show house numbers, and they also show parcel numbers to uniquely reference all land parcels or areas and their related acreages. The new maps complement the more detailed , scale maps of larger urban areas, scanned last year. This small set of maps of Scotland , also includes maps of Scottish towns , counties and regions, and some coastal charts. They were generally published by private companies, including G. Johnston and Edward Stanford. There are many attractive and interesting maps of the whole of Scotland , including geological maps, maps for tourists, and road maps for cyclists and motorists.
Emslie , educational maps for school room use, recreational maps for hunting , maps associated with particular meetings, including the British Association for the Advancement of Science in Aberdeen, and a map of the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh A few coastal charts have also been added, including War Office maps proposing coastal harbour defences The Ordnance Survey Books of Reference or Area Books record acreages of each land parcel on the OS 25 inch to the mile maps , and usually its land use, except in settlements and for counties surveyed after From , Books of Reference were published for specific parishes, which the Library bound together into 22 volumes, ordered alphabetically by parish.
The easiest way of searching for information is by county and parish. The Books of Reference often include index maps of the map sheet layout over the parish, and an index of place names on the maps covering the parish. The volumes were published for counties surveyed after This new gazetteer allows you to search 2. The names have been gathered through the GB transcription project , which ran from September to January , transcribing all text content from these maps.
Parish and county names have been added to the transcribed names to make the names easier to tell apart and to provide locational context. The gazetteer provides a very comprehensive list of names for rural areas. Street names are included for many settlements too, although the six-inch maps do not name all streets comprehensively. The gazetteer also includes names of many features that no longer exist, so not found in present-day OpenStreetMap or Google gazetteers. Bartholomew's beautifully layer-coloured half-inch to the mile maps were developed from the s, first covering Scotland as a series in the s, and England and Wales by This series covering Great Britain in 62 sheets in the s, their first to cover Great Britain at this scale, provides an attractive and useful snapshot of post-War Britain.
Bartholomew deliberately selected only certain details from the Ordnance Survey maps, and also added their own. They added categories of roads, including drove roads, steamer routes, and rights of way that were often not shown on Ordnance Survey maps.

They also took information from a range of other sources, including local authority surveyors, and from a large and growing body of their customers who they invited to write in with corrections. Our new interactive Boundaries viewer allows counties and parishes from the s, and unitary authorities, districts and boroughs from , to be viewed on a range of different map backgrounds. You can zoom in on any location, click on your point of interest, and the county, parish, or unitary authority that covers the point you have clicked on is shown.

These administrative jurisdictions, especially parishes, have many other family and local history records associated with them, and viewing their location and extents is therefore important. The new viewer is accompanied by detailed information on the history of these administrative units , significant legislation that has affected them, and cartographic information sources which show the development of these units over time. This small set of 34 maps of the World has been selected for their historical interest, content, and aesthetic qualities.
The maps show the many different ways that the World has been visualised and understood over time, and each reflect aspects of the society and culture when they were created. An emphasis on expanding geographic and topographic knowledge and detail from the 16th to the 18th centuries, was often replaced by a growing interest in the emerging sciences and physical environment in the 19th century.
The use of different projections and printing technologies, particularly in the 20th century, allow many other themes, including imperialism, trade, travel, and peace, to be illustrated. Many of these world maps are from larger atlases by C.
Ptolemy , H. Moll , W. Johnston , A. Fullarton , and J. We have been pleased to collaborate with the British Library in a recent project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, to scan, georeference and make available Ordnance Survey mapping for Devon. The project forms part of the Know Your Place West of England Project, and has allowed us to fill gaps in our holdings for Devon with British Library maps, so our online presentation is now more complete. After three years' of scanning, and 89, sheets later, we have now completed adding this large series online.
These maps are the most detailed topographic mapping covering England and Wales from the s to the s. The maps are very useful for local history, allowing almost every feature in the landscape to be shown.

They provide good detail of all buildings, streets, railways, industrial premises, parkland, farms, woodland, and rivers. This set of Ministry of Transport Road Maps , issued by the Ordnance Survey in at the half-inch to the mile scale , , are the first to accurately show the initial numbered roads in Scotland. Class I roads in red show important routes connecting large population centres, whilst less important Class II roads are shown in green. The maps were the result of close liaison between the Ministry of Transport and Ordnance Survey, and are the most important cartographic resource documenting the early days of road numbering in Scotland.
Kitchener's Survey of Cyprus represents the first full triangulated survey of the island of Cyprus, and it was the most accurate map of the island when published. The maps are very detailed, marking roads, tracks, and telegraph lines, and locating vineyards, monasteries, ruins, sheepfolds, springs, wells and aqueducts. Towns and villages are identified as being Christian or Muslim, and are given both their Greek and Turkish names. The set consists of a title sheet and 15 map sheets at a scale of one inch to the mile, and are supplemented with a single-sheet index map at a scale of five miles to the inch.
