Sense of Place: Tithe maps


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. Crowd sourcing the transcription of maps and apportionments also made the text searchable.
