I noticed in a recent issue of National Geographic a promotion of an online collection of its maps. On examining the site itself, I did happen to realise that it's as much out to sell reprints of those maps as anything... but there's an interesting free feature in that you can view and zoom in on the maps. Of course, you don't get the obsessive aerial detail of Google Earth, but for me there's a definite interest in zooming in on a map from 1936 and finding my hometown as a dot on it. (Back then, it was just a village instead of a town.)
