Ancient Mapping Technologies

Via The Map Room I see that the oldest surviving road map of Great Britain is browseable through an almost equally dated and obsolete ArcIMS viewer. One of the greatest achievements of Google's disruptive map application has been to bury the notion that this pre-CSS, pre-AJAX web app is an acceptable way to present maps online.

ArcIMS is an absolute bear to develop in. Google Maps's API beats the ArcIMS aimsadmin and params.js.
