Charting the Nation (CN) includes single maps, maps in atlases, and other bound books, as well as manuscript and printed texts relating to the geography and mapping of Scotland from 1550 to 1740 and beyond. Currently, there are 2,208 images, and more will be added later this year. CN employs the Luna Insight Image Browser, which provides a handy workspace for zooming in, rotating maps, and comparing maps, although it's a little difficult to read the image metadata. CN's initial plan was to begin at 1590, but has been able to incorporate some items that pre-date Timothy Pont and his sixteenth century field maps, the earliest a manuscript map of the English/ Scottish border from 1522.
