Atlas of Historical County Boundaries (The Newberry Library)

Alabama Maps (But not only maps of Alabama)
"The Historical Map Archive is a digitized collection of selected map holdings from sources including the University of Alabama Map Library, the W. S. Hoole Special Collections Library, the Birmingham Public Library Cartography Collection of the Birmingham Public Library, the Geological Survey of Alabama, Samford University Special Collections Library, and the Alabama Department of Archives and History. We are indebted to these organizations for their cooperation in facilitating the introduction of these digitial maps to the Internet."


Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States (Digital Scholarship Lab, University of Richmond):
"Here you will find one of the greatest historical atlases: Charles O. Paullin and John K. Wright's Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States, first published in 1932. This digital edition reproduces all of the atlas's nearly 700 maps. Many of these beautiful maps are enhanced here in ways impossible in print, animated to show change over time or made clickable to view the underlying data—remarkable maps produced eight decades ago with the functionality of the twenty-first century."
