Historic Maps of Los Angeles

Mike Carson at SoCalGIS posted about Earthworks recently – so I took a quick look.

Interestingly, I found a scanned, georeferenced map of downtown LA (the first survey of the city) – I had seen the original at a recent Geospatial LA tour of the LA Central Library – I had thought it would be interesting to scan and georeference these maps, and they are already there!

So – for those of you who might want to see the older maps, take a loot. ┬áHere is a link to a search for the LA Area:

https://earthworks.stanford.edu/?bbox=-119.355469+33.063924+-117.026367+35.245619&per_page=100&search_field=dummy_range

I requested a download of that map, so it should be interesting to see what arrives!
