Design process

I got an idea from the gap between these map collection and google maps. Those maps had drawn by cartographers, and it has only one perspective, but in google maps, people can choose various ways to explore the maps like satellite, street, 2D, 3D, etc. So I want to give these old maps to diverse perspectives use existing technology, which is google image search.

If the user clicked the map, it would connect to google image search with the name of the map + year that shows the photos from a whole different view. (Design in the project is changed a little bit for the widescreen).
