According to some scholars, mapping represented a significant step forward in the intellectual development of human beings and it serves as a record of the advancement of knowledge of the human race, which could be passed from members of one generation to those that follow in the development of culture. Maps began as two dimensional drawings. Although that remains the nature of most maps, modern graphics have enabled projections beyond that.
The earliest known maps are of the heavens, not the earth. Dots dating to 16, BCE found on the walls of the Lascaux caves map out part of the night sky, including the three bright stars Vega, Deneb, and Altair the Summer Triangle asterism , as well as the Pleiades star cluster.

It is supported though not financially by external organisations such as the British Library, the National Library of Scotland and Cambridge University Library; as well as by the private collections of members of SABRE, who have donated scans of maps to the project; and non-members who have donated map scans into the public domain. It also acts as a front-end for modern on-line mapping such as OpenStreetMap.
It has proven invaluable in tracking down changes to the road network, and is the only place on the Internet where the entire OS Ministry of Transport Road Maps showing the original Great Britain road numbering system can be seen. Included within its features is the ability to show map traces of current numbered routes; and in overlaying historic mapping over a modern OpenStreetMap layer, which shows up historic road realignments and changes; as well as other historical changes such as the railway closures associated with Beeching et al in the s; the growth and development of New Towns such as Milton Keynes , Telford or Cumbernauld ; and the changes in land usage within urban areas.
SABRE Maps is reliant on “crowd-sourcing” of mapping – if you have any maps that you would be willing to donate scans of, then please get in touch with us. Individual maps are known as map layers , whilst collections of layers are known as layer groups. The Ordnance Survey layer, for example, hosts Landranger mapping, but not Explorer mapping, in accordance with our license to use the data.
This means that there is a wealth of mapping out there for SABRE Maps in this scale, but maps at this scale did not include road numbers until the s, and then only sporadically across most of Great Britain.

A serial entrepreneur, he set up a number of diverse businesses, one of the earliest being importing maps that detailed areas and events relevant to the American civil war.
