19th Century German Maps

Post  Ian on Thu Jun 02, 2011 1:37 am

Just looking at Google Earth and noticed yellow and red compas roses all over Germany. On closer inspection they were for Rumseys Historical Maps. They are the sort of repros you get as souveniers, but they overlay them onto the area of Google Earth they are for. All appear to be mid 19th Century Germany.

In G-E, go to Layers in the sidebar, then in the sub folders Primary Database-> Gallery you should see the box for these.

Once active click on the compass rose.

To switch on/off once overlaid go to the Places window in the side bar, and at the bottom of the wiring diagram you will see 'Temporary places', you just tick/untick to get rid of a map.

You can compare tyhe 19th cent map with the satalite photo to give some indication of terrain
