  2. 2. There are billions of maps in the archives
  3. 3. In Wikimedia Commons maps look like this
  4. 4. This is how they look like in archives
  5. 5. The maps need to be digitized And georeferenced Not restricted by copyright Served through user-friendly interfaces Referenced from Wikipedia Used anywhere Available for annotations Semantically linked Returned enriched to memory institutions Even millions of items should be handled easily
  6. 6. Visualizing scenes from history or literature. Routing with historical restrictions, road networks. Linking places to their names across time and also to instances of maps that show them. Creating historical maps for Wikipedia. Geotagging historical photographs with the help of the historical maps from the same era. Exploration of networked historical topics. What could the maps be used for?
