Michael Zeiler’s Solar Eclipse Map Website

Eclipse map: Partial eclipse for Jan. 4, 2011

Michael Zeiler, GIS professional by day, eclipse mapper by night — last April I blogged about his map of solar eclipses from 2010 to 2050 — is back with a whole website dedicated to solar eclipse maps. The site, Zeiler writes, “has over 1,000 historical eclipse maps and about 300 newly published eclipse maps, including maps for tomorrow’s partial solar eclipse and the solar eclipse which will bisect North America in 2017.” It’s still under construction, and several sections are still unfinished, but I’m already in love with the history section full of scans of those historical eclipse maps.
