Caution I would remind you that it is forbidden by law to prospect on archaeological areas. Use the cards wisely and act with appropriate permissions.

The concept is very simple and usable both with Google map or Google earth. I recommend for ease to directly download Google Earth which is a sublime and free app. If you do not know the concept, start and you will be surprised!

Select .kmz or .kmz file, enter the old cards that you are looking for (e.g. Cassini) and start searching!


On the other hand, it is possible that look this way old maps can be laborious… That is why that yours truly (myself!) has already chewed you work!

The preferential treatment
