History buffs will now be able to travel back in time to see how Berlin’s landscape has changed over the past century, thanks to a fascinating piece of software which overlays historical maps and landmarks with those of the present day on a live Bing Maps platform.
This TimeMap Berlin contains historic maps of the City of Berlin for the years 1869, 1893, 1926 and 1957. Use the TimeScope to move around the map and the Time Slider to see how the city has changed over time.
Below is a details picture of the TimeScope. You can drag it around and use the 3 sliders (marked in yellow) to change the map. On the right side (picture above) you can zoom directly into some famous Berlin buildings.
Looks great! 😀
