USGS-Topoview

USGS Topoview is mapping software that displays historic topographic maps and shows how the maps have changed over time. The maps are restricted to North America, which limits the amount of data that can be displayed. By selecting a time period, it is possible to view which topographic maps are available for selected areas of America. These topographic maps can be downloaded and shared (see below).

Overall I would rate this site as 2/5, as the topographic maps provided are of good quality however the sites data source is limited.
