Hi Martin,


Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for, but we did a map project for the centenary of the Battle of Jutland 2 years ago. The map is still live and we encourage visitors to update it from home, or in the exhibition. Sadly I didn’t have any involvement in the project, so I only know of its existence.

Hi all

I’m helping an HLF project develop plans for a website presenting historical data, much of which is geo-related. Can anyone can suggest good recent examples of maps used creatively to present data of various types?  

Desirable features include turn on and off-able layers, zooming, presentation of metadata from specific points or areas, etc.

The idea is that users will be able to browse via maps, or categories, or AV types, and so on.    They will also be asked to contribute more data, starting from a map point/area, or from elsewhere in the site. 

Any nice recent or upcoming examples?

Also points to beware of [or indeed to be aware of!] ?
