This section of History Travel Guide & Galleries is dedicated to maps. Historical maps that is. So if you have a craving for sharing some longitude we'll be more than happy to give you a lot of latitude. When posting your maps be sure to obey copyright laws and our regulations from the CoC though. When in doubt ask the owner of the copyright material for permission.

If there are any questions don't hesitate to contact any one of the staff. Smile

Seko, I looked at this site and I found "no maps", nor representations of cities, places, etc.!
 
I have a good collection of sites that support hundreds of old  maps and other types of representations, such as those called "birds eye views", etc.
 
I know to save bandwidth, the actual maps should not be shown, so is it alright to posts numerous web addresses?
 
Regards,

You mean something like this...
 
Mapa Mundi of Juan de la Cosa (ca. 1500) from the cartographic collection of the Museo Naval de Madrid, as photographed by Bruce Ruiz, Sr. in 1992.
 
since many of us are experts in historical cartography and given that most of us are adept with search engines and do know how to 'retrieve" archival materials on-line, are you not afraid that you will only be opening the door to a flood of materials already "pirated" by Wiki? Of course, if you do wish to begin discussions on cartography in the 15th and 16th centuries and the later refinement of the 17th, please go right ahead [even an "on-line" bibliography of sites would be most welcome].

The ongoing problem here is with embedding videos, not showing still pictures. Too many redumdamt images of course make it harder to read through threads.
 
Links are no problem, though you still have to take account of the boredom factor.

If looking at sites bores you, as I seem to have already noticed, then just don't!  But, perhaps there are young and neophyte historians who have never thought to use these valuable sources?
 
Thus I intend to bore you as much as possible!Big smile

Just as long as the post doesn't contain 120 links or a ridiculous amount of pictures, but more input from the poster, then i think it's fine.

My dear Panther, just why could not this site become a repository of volumes of information that could aid students of the past?  Certainly, if one student, or researcher, wanted to find a site, whereby, most all of the "footwork" had already been done, then it would be more power to the student or researcher to come here first?
 
But, while I find these sites wonderful , exciting and informative, it seems that younger students, as well as others, find them boring!  Perhaps it is just the advent of Google Earth and GPS, that limits the minds of some of us?
 
Just trying to promote research!

I have plenty of maps, but I am afraid I will have to redraw them if I have to think of copyright. What if the book the map is taken has a googlized version on google books? Can we then put it up considering that the page is public there?
