From February - May 2022, we initiated a set of new collaborative projects to transcribe features and text from maps. We have gathered all of the placenames from the Roy Military Survey maps of Scotland (1747-55), traced footpaths from Ordnance Survey six-inch to the mile maps of Scotland (ca.1900s), and gathered text from Ordnance Survey 25 inch to the mile mapping of Edinburgh.
