TheGenealogist’s New Map Explorer

The following is an announcement from TheGenealogist.

Press Release: Announcing Map Explorer
Powerful new map tool helps trace ancestors properties through time 
TheGenealogist’s latest innovation helps you find an ancestor’s property and watch the landscape change over time. The team have georeferenced their Lloyd George Maps for Greater London which are available at launch, with further exciting developments planned for the coming months.

TheGenealogist’s Map Explorer displays maps for different historical periods up to the modern day
Maps are fully searchable by county, parish, street and even postcode
Zoom down to show the individual properties as they were at the time
Use the transparency slider to reveal a modern street map underneath
Change the modern base map displayed to more clearly understand what the area looks like today
Georeferenced pins link to the records for each property
Display county or parish boundaries

The powerful Map Explorer has been developed to view these georeferenced historic maps overlaid on top of modern background maps including those from Ordnance Survey and Bing Street maps, as well as a satellite view, letting you see where your ancestor's house is today. 

To complement the launch of the new Map Explorer, TheGenealogist has also released historic Ordnance Survey maps covering England, Scotland and Wales between the 1890’s and 1960’s. These have also been georeferenced, allowing you to see how the landscape changed over time.
