Past Maps

I recently found this site, from an email I received from the next President of CIAT Gary Mees. Its a UK wide map with different layers that can be applied, to show a variety of items and places related to conservation, the list is quite interesting :

Be careful, you can only use the layers on PastMap once you have zoomed in to scale 1:27000. After this point you will be able to apply one or multiple layers. I spent a long time trying to make it work, so sent an email to the site owner, he replied very quickly and I was sorted.

This is a clasic example of map use and layering to show graphical data. I think I overdid the photo today which is a screenshot of all layers switched on for a portion of Scotland.
