The geographic location of scanned maps offers new possibilities for discovery, interaction, visualisation and reuse. This talk discusses the approaches and standards which are bridging the worlds of the cultural heritage institutions with the digital cartography and geographic information systems (GIS). Learn about a new mapping platform providing a complete toolkit for maps and aerial photos. Matching the scanned maps to the real world location is now straightforward and possible directly in a web browser - for any image available via IIIF or as a TIFF or a JPEG file. The automatically created standardised map services allow reuse in GIS, comparing maps, new forms of online research, extraction of features, new 3D visualisations, mashups and mobile applications.
