Members of the public can access the collection of two million maps, books, photos, documents and objects spanning the past 500 years of geographical exploration. Users can research the lives of famous explorers such as Livingstone or Mary Kingsley, study nineteenth-century maps of Britain, Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Europe, or use the collection of travel guides to research a holiday.
