I was lent 65 first-edition 1:500 OS maps of Ipswich dating back to  
1882 a couple of days ago which I have now photographed and uploaded  
to Flickr. I was surprised to find that there was no Flickr group of  
out-of-copyright OS maps so I created it.

The rules I have created says that all maps should be geo-coded, that  
the photos should be released CCBYSA and that the contributor agrees  
that the images can also be used to derive mapping for OSM (to cover  
use under ODBL where there derivation from CCBYSA is less certain.

The group is here:

I have also just rectified one map using Warper. Four control points  
seemed to do the job very well.

If anyone has any suggestions about adjusting the rules for the group  
or wants to be an admin then please let me know.
