Interesting website to waste time

  dagbladet 10:06 10 Aug 2017

I've just stumbled across this fascinating website from the National Library of Scotland. Basically you can transpose old and modern maps and look at the difference over time. I've got 1888 and a recent satellite image from google maps. Use the blue slider on the left hand side to adjust the transparency.

Been using Georeference maps for a long time, very useful for historic research :0)

I have bought numerous maps from the library over the years, but this is new to me, and very interesting. Thanks for the link.

Can anyone tell me how to decipher the different coloured areas in The Soil Survey of Scotland 1950-1980. It says.

Absolutely fascinating, as with a good book, I can't get away from checking out the various places that I've lived in over the years!
