Maps, Maps and More Maps

Ever stumble upon a great site and go wow, where was this a week ago? Well I think I found in this site on maps. It has old maps, new maps, online maps and interactive maps from the housing crisis to a long long time ago. The University of Texas Libraries have created a vast database of maps that are either public domain or have been given permission to use for educational purposes.

An Exmaple of these wonderful maps:

"The Public Schools Historical Atlas" by Charles Colbeck. Longmans, Green; New York; London; Bombay. 1905
