Cool Stuff Alert: Interactive Map of London

The folks over at the Atlantic’s CityLab site ran a story yesterday that’s just too cool to share only via the Twitter and Facebook feeds: An Interactive Map of Shakespeare’s London–The project brings 16th century London into the present.

The article discusses the University of Victoria’s project to add historical background and a little ol’ interactivity to the so-called “Agas” map of London, the woodblock bird’s-eye view that is the Civitas Londinum map.
