Journal of Maps: Research-Based Maps Online

The Journal of Maps is an electronic publication dedicated to the publication of research-based maps.  Although a login is required, registration is completely free and one you are logged in your can access a number of research papers.

The journal features a worldKit-based interface that features research paper map extents displayed over a global map.  The site also provides the abiilty to view the map locations in Google Maps, displayed below (or see here).  

It is great to see a forum emerge for interactively browsing research papers by geographic areas as opposed to the more traditional approach of searching based on subject.  It should be interesting to see how the journal develops!

Many institutions limit access to their online information. Making this information available will be an asset to all.
