Historical Maps on Timepix

The historical Ordnance Survey maps in Timepix provide a detailed view of the landscape from around 1900. They are especially useful where modern redevelopment has destroyed the original location of the image you are interested in, and for checking to see if street names or other details have changed.  The maps are provided by the National Library of Scotland  and Klokan Technologies GmbH.

  • Great Britain, 1.016 inches to 16 miles (1:1 million) published 1905

  • Quarter-inch (1:253,440) published 1900-1906
