Useful websites for maps

Steve,

two reasons. when one person asks a question, there are usually more that need to, but don't. And, it seemed a shame that anyone should be disatisfied with the site. I thought it was fantastic.

Here's the similar link to the Ferraris 1777 maps of Belgium (originally from either you or Bruno I think). It is very interesting to study this carefully to see how quickly terrain could change. Take the field at Waterloo for example. It shows woods east of Hougoumont and more woods along the ridge held by Picton. No doubt Ferraris collated information that may have spanned some time, but by 1815 there was no trace of either set of woods.

There was also a rather useful French set I think. Unfortunately I have lost that link in various hard drive failures.

There is this site set up by a geography student at Queen's University in Kingston: http://geog.queensu.ca/napoleonatlas/. I have spoken with the supervising professor and there is unfortunately no interest in expanding the site.

I would be very interested in finding other such sites, so bring 'em on!
