    Prominent on these old maps is a system of "thumb" lines which center at a compass rose, representing the distance between points.
    Hee hee. Nice find, though.

    Info Stunning Map Resources...

    These reference links were passed from the CC2 yahoo groups list - I checked them out, and yes, these are great cartographic resources...

    http://oddens.geog.uu.nl/

    http://historic-cities.huji.ac.il/

    The top is Odden's list of Cartographic resources, the second is on historic cities...

    Just thought these were worth passing on!

    Someone should gather all the links into one sticky for all these great sites... in fact, someone with a little more time could compile all the great links we've seen on here, the relevant ones to mapping of course.. just a thought..

    **Perhaps even have it in an FAQ type of thing... if you can link directly to posts and threads, you can also put links in for some of the great tutorials here as well...

    I stumbled across a site selling prints of antique maps:

    Some nice maps of China in there, but I haven't looked at anything else yet.

    Free Relief Layers for Google Maps. Great relief maps of the world. Several layers (waterbodies, labeling, lots of other stuff).

    Really nice resouce! You can just get rid of the labels, zoom into a bit and make your own instant map.
