About Me

I am an engineer and have worked on many of the major infrastructure projects in Hong Kong and the wider region. Over the years, I have collected copies of old maps and started this web site in 2016 to share the historic maps of Hong Kong and Southern China. I have collected the maps from many sources and try to provide a reference where available. With nearly 100 maps, the managment of the website was becoming complex, thus during 2021 I re-built the website to make it easier to maintain and provide additional functions, including:
- additional background map options
- hiden map menu
- upload kml and gpx files
- location indicator
- map informatio
- scale bar
- longitude and latitude display

Enjoy
