The georeferencer is back!

Coinciding nicely with GIS Day 2013 the British Library's Lead Curator of Digital Mapping Kimberly Kowal has just released online the biggest batch yet of digitised maps needing georeferencing: 2,700 of them! 

She explains, "We're asking the public to help "place" them, ie identify their locations by assigning points using modern mapping. It can be a challenge, but it is an opportunity to discover familiar areas as they existed around one hundred years ago." 

Read more about it over on the British Library Maps & Views Blog.

Or just dive right in and get georeferencing!
