With over 21,000 maps online, the David Rumsey Historical Maps Collection is so vast that it can be hard to keep tabs on all the great new maps that make it to the site. Thus, the Featured Maps area is quite a welcome find for cartographers, geographers, and the just plain curious. Visitors can view all of the recent additions here, which have included collections of map cartouches (or decorative map titles), 19th century maps by children, and maps from the National Survey of France. After a quick look around, visitors can also add their own comments, and sign up for their RSS feed. The site also contains links to special video features, news updates, and a clutch of related map sites.
