Dent’s Run Mine

Some maps sent by Mark Huston. I think they are an adjunct to his story Twenty-Eight Men, but his email didn’t say. He did say “The satellite photos were provided by Doug Jones, the map is from the WV state mining website, where they have a public archive of all closed mines. This is the mine that is the model for the coal mine in 1632 and is within the ROF.”

Old Maps Online  A collection of sixty-thousand historic maps  with a googlemapish interface. You can zoom in/out on the globe and pick a timerange with a slider. The sidebar on the right lists a selection of maps within the area you’re viewing. Mousing over an item in the list will show a bounding box on the main map which will be helpful for people who don’t read the language the original was titled in.  You can view the historic map, and some maps can be viewed as a overlay on top of the modern map. Very cool.
