Historical Maps on Google Earth

You can now turn your Google Earth satellite imagery into a historical world globe, like one from 1790. Just download Google Earth, install & delete the language files if necessary (e.g. on a German OS), and open and check some of the layers contained in Featured Content -> Rumsey Historical Maps as pictured above.
