DAMP has been set up in order to digitise as many pre-Ordnance Survey maps and estate plans as we can.
We are starting with the Nithsdale area and concentrating on 18th century hand-drawn cartography. There are several hundred of these still extant offering in their fine detail a totally novel look at our history, geography and society.
Placing these maps in the public domain will allow in depth study on a large number of fronts and help residents and school children develop a deeper sense of place.
If you would like to join us you will be most welcome. For more information and a list of member benefits click here.
