Yesterday morning I shared a assortment of greater than 100,000 historic maps for classroom use. In that publish I discussed utilizing these maps to create digital overlays on present maps. Google Earth supplies a few methods to try this. Felt.com is one other digital mapping software that can be utilized for a similar objective.

There are a few methods to overlay historic maps on present maps in Google Earth. The primary is to easily use the Rumsey Historic Maps assortment layer in Google Earth.
