Undiscovered Salford : Ordnance Survey Maps of Salford and Manchester
datasetposted on 15.11.2018 by Bill Ayres
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
High resolution scanned images of Ordnance Survey maps from 1932 and 1933 in .tif file format, and corresponding .pdf format versions of these.
These show parts of Salford, including the former docks, and the western side of Manchester city centre.
A0 sized poster prints of these maps were used as part of the Undiscovered Salford display in the Community Science Showcase at Manchester Science Festival's GameLab event. The event took place on 20/21 October 2018 at the University of Salford's MediaCityUK campus.
Original files kindly provided by the Salford Local History Library from their archives held at the Salford Art Gallery & Museum.
