<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">This morning, over 3,100 maps&nbsp;were released for public georeferencing. We are asking volunteers to look at historic maps and identify their locations using online modern mapping.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

 from within a much larger set of images in Flickr (1&nbsp; million!).<o:p></o:p></span></p>
