Chris Fleet of the National Library of Scotland gives us an introduction to wide variety of maps held with details of some of the collections helpful to people interested in family history / genealogy or researching specific places. We also discuss digitisation, transcription projects such as the Roy Military Survey of the 1740s, estate and county maps and some of the multitude of Ordnance Survey maps available going back to the mid 1800s.
