Explore the National Library of Scotland map collection
The National Library of Scotland is one of the largest libraries in the United Kingdom and their map collection holds more than 1 500 000 cartographic items. MapTiler is proud to host selected maps for anyone to use in their projects. Their online map collection is available here.
We have scanned paper map sheets of out-of-copyright Ordnance Survey maps. All the individual map sheets were cropped to remove their margins and then georeferenced in the OSGB coordinate system. They were then combined together to create one zoomable seamless map for Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland.
The map tiles were rendered on a computer cluster using a customized version of the MapTiler Engine application.
