iPhone App: Walking Through Time – Edinburgh Edition

Walking Through Time is a SatNav for historical maps: A phone app that combines GPS technology with old maps to allow users to walk through time. The Map set is for central Edinburgh and allows the user to see a variety of Historic maps from 1740 to 1960. The application also comes with a set of narrated walking tours from the Edinburgh College of Art and Edinburgh.

Its a great concept, the movie below provides more details:


We hope to see more cities become available over the coming months, get in touch with Chris Speed from the Edinburgh College of Art for more details.

You can download the free app from iTunes.
