Territory Mapping

Territory mapping tool

Catalogued maps only

The Territory Mapping tool presents locations of WOSSAC items using Google Maps - select a territory from the drop-down box below the map to zoom to see the results for your area of interest.

Current territory: Tanzania (280 items)

Click on a name from the list above to see and select from the set of georeferenced items. Note that items may relate to regions as well as countries, and that items may be filed under several names (e.g. England, England Wales and Scotland, GB etc.). Note also that only those items having recorded coordinates are displayed - the full catalogue will hold more items for this territory.

The item markers show the location of georeferenced Wossac records, presented dynamically from our database. Click on items to see the record details, or move the mouse over them to see the bounding box of the map extent. Mapping is shown restricted to one country at a time to keep your access times reasonable. Please note, the scale of mapping and transfer of co-ordinates from the original maps may result in some misalignments and displacement of the pin markers. Please check the co-ordinates on the original map to verify the exact location.
