Where’s the Path?

| March 10, 2013 | 2 Comments 

In looking at maps, old and new, we find the site “Wherethepath” to be really useful. It gives you the power to see different map formats, side-by-side, and to toggle between modern maps & old 1940s versions.

This a free site, (and OS impose a limit of 200000 map tile fetches per day”), but, if it runs out temporarily, the site will run with out of copyright 1940s OS Mapping. There is a version of this site without route planning HERE.

    A useful site that allows mapping comparison through time. This allows people to identify developments and make predictions on how an area could develop and then how it does and then evaluate. The site has multiple tab changes that you can incorporate that allows the user to explore a specific site in multiple ways to possible identify new features / patterns.

    So for a geographer – plenty to describe, explain and compare and contrast. A wealthy map review site that is very easy to use which is one of the main things. Be careful that students don’t tag the donate key within the site. Enjoy using the site.
