David Rumsy Map Collection

If you’re excited about maps, you have to check out the David Rumsy Map Collection. This 30 year project has amassed over 150,000 maps and has been using high-resolution scanning to digitize the collection. The digital maps are available for free non-commercial use through a Creative Common License, making this a great resource when you’re looking for basemaps or historic information.

One of the cooler features on the Rumsy Collection website is the georeferencer. In the georeferencer you can select a digitized map from their collection and overlay it on another map to better compare the two. Happy exploring!
