The National Library Wales Cynefin: Mapping Wales’ Sense of Place project improved access to tithe maps, as well as protecting the originals, held in archives across Wales and popular with researchers. By ‘stitching’ together individual digital images, and working with volunteers to geotag them, they created an interactive historic and modern map. Crowdsourcing the transcription of maps and apportionments also made the text searchable.
The ‘About’ page explains the background to the project, including how the maps were conserved and digitised and how they were transcribed and georeferenced.
