Christopher Fleet (Organiser), 13 Dec 2012

This one day conference discussed the many new ways in which old maps can be used once they have been digitised, especially if they are findable, down-loadable and even used as part of a mashup.

It was supported by JISC and hosted by The National Library of Scotland.

The key note presentation 'Old Maps Online' was given by Petr Pridal (Klokan Technologies). Session 1 covered 'Mapping history with technology', Session 2 focused on 'Visualizing places, spaces and in-between' and Session 3 was on 'Utilising Gazetteers and place-names'.
