#Crowdsourcing project at the British Library to gather metadata on its historical #map collections invites the public to interact with map treasures in a new way. 
The British Library has found that the public appetite for interacting with maps - while contributing to cultural heritage collections - has proven insatiable. The Library holds nearly 4½ million atlas, maps, globes, and books on cartography, dating from the fifteenth century to the present day.

#Georeferencing  thanks to #crowdsourcing done! More than 2,700 #maps from the collection of the British Library were completed by volunteers in just seven weeks! The precise location of each scanned map is now known.

All maps may be accessed here: http://www.bl.uk/maps/georeferencingmap.html

The easiest way to turn an image into a map
Introduction
Libraries, archives and other culture heritage institutions have begun a process of massive scanning and publishing of historical maps. A scanned map is only a picture and not a map at all: it is not searchable geographically and cannot be compared with other maps. Georeferencer is an online service that turns the existing scans into true maps and can be easily integrated in institution’s website.
