Location Maps within ArchSearch

ADS / AHDS Archaeology is pleased to announce a new trial service within
ArchSearch. Using  links to the recently launched 'Google Maps' service
we're able to present location maps and limited aerial photography
within
ArchSearch records.  Archaeological sites and other features of
historical
and architectural interest are located within bounding boxes based on
the
precision with which sites are recorded. Users are able to zoom and pan
easily around an area.

This new feature is presented as a trial because we want comments.  To
use
the service, simply go to any record in ArchSearch and switch on the
maps in
the dialog box on the top right  They will stay with for the rest of
your
session.  

Here are some examples with high resolution imagery, or features that
stand
out on the ground:
