The online Smithsonian Magazine has partnered with Allen Carroll and Bern Szukalski at ESRI's story maps to create urban history time viewers showing changes in the growth of six American cities using georeferenced maps from the Rumsey Collection. You can experience all the map viewers here.
Below are two images of Colton's 1836 Map of New York City compared to a modern satellite image, using the "spyglass" map viewer created by the ESRI map story team. You can switch between the old map and the modern map as a base, using the "Swap Views" button in the upper right corner. See the live interactive viewer here.
You can see more ESRI story maps on other topics and themes here.
