    Default Libraries, gotta love 'em

    http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/

    Apparently the library of the university of texas has a ton of real world maps on file. I thought I'd share the link!

    I also thought this thread could be a place to share links of library databases of maps, as I'm sure UT isn't the only Uni with a backlog like this. So share what you've got, or point towards othe threads on the same topic.

    Hi Slipguard,

    This thread is the place to share library database links...I've moved your post here.

    Thanks for the link!

    I don't think that this link was mentioned before in this thread, but the Barry Lawrence Ruderman Antique Maps Inc. website has many old maps. On the homepage it says that there are more than 10,000 15th-19th century maps.

    There is also a site that is full of cartographic curiosities--strange real life maps.

    Here are beautiful maps of Belgium in 1777. The site is in french, but you only have to select a box on the map, and then on the blue link in "résultats" in the above part of the page.
    It is not possible to download the map themselves, but only to view them (unless you want to pay 40 euros for a single map...).

    NOAA have some DEMs. (Digital Elevation Models). Notably ETOPO1, topography and bathymetry with a resolution of about 1.5 km, available as a nice shaded relief map as well as a DEM. http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/bathymetry/relief.html

    This website http://desktopgisbook.com/data has shapefiles for national borders (not up-to-date with South Sudan mind), and locations of 606 major cities worldwide.
