We have recently added a '''great link''' found by Harald Howe: [http://mapire.eu/en/ Mapire - Historic Maps of the Habsburg Empire]. This website offers a wonderful collection of historic maps of the Habsburg Empire (for ex.: military survey of 1763-1787, 1806-1869...) coupled with modern mapping softwares. You can even synchronize views of modern and old maps. A must see!
