HISTORIC MAP COLLECTION OF THE OeAW ONLINE

Over 380 early historical maps, plans and views from the collections of the Austrian Academy of Sciences are now available online. The new Woldan Collection platform provides access to scanned-in historic map materials that are zoomable, accompanied by extensive curator's notes and may be downloaded for free. Amongst them are unique treasures, such as the 500-year-old Wieder-Woldan Map of the world before Columbus.
