The Boston Public Library’s Norman B. Leventhal Map Center has a collection of over 200,000 maps and 5,000 atlas, some of which are available online at a splashy new site. There is much to explore here, including a couple of beautifully put together online tours (Faces and Places and Journeys of the Imagination - blogged about here earlier), a map of the month ( this month it is a map of Boston from 1777), a focus on maps in the news (currently it is an indepth look at Iraq using maps), and, of course, various maps from the collections. All maps are in Zoomify format and the highest resolution is quite impressive. Many maps are available online; the search tool is perhaps the best way to make your way through this collection. Happily this collection also includes recently produced maps.
