More with the Google Maps Gallery

A while back, I had shared how much fun I had poking around the Google Maps Gallery.

Last night, I went back to see how the development of the resource was going.  I found some really interesting maps.  People are taking advantage of this.  Mapping a school district with its catchment areas is a natural.  Check out the Yakima School District.

Now, I’m really interested and poked around some more.

I’ve always been a fan of the David Rumney Map Collection.  Parts of the collection now appear here.

Check out our little part of North America in 1827.

It’s absolutely a wonderful resource.  Take some time and poke around for yourself.  If you enjoy a good map collection, you’ll love this.
