Plat Maps A plat map is a plan of an area which shows the legal boundaries and dimensions of each parcel of land. These maps can usually be found at your local city or county government center. Check for the property owners of your parcel of land on each of the plat maps you locate. Street Maps These maps can help identify when the street you are researching was created. It is not uncommon to find that the street name has changed over time. Check with your local municipality for the existence of old street maps. Many city directories actually contain a street map that provides details on the streets covered by the directory. Comparing these maps with current maps can help to pinpoint street names that have been changed. Libraries typically have copies of city directories at their facilities.
Paper maps are a great handy help for sure, but comprehensive information cannot be obtained from them. For this it is better that a more exhaustive source is sought and that can be done through the travel map of Europe which is available to them online. The online map caters to the need of the tourists by providing them specific information even about the cities of the different countries present in the continent. One can even look for information about the cities of various countries and visit them. These maps also prevent the tourists from wandering here and there and reach directly to the place where they wish to be. With the travel map Europe, tourists who are planning their visit to the continent or are currently visiting, can seek guidance to further plan the itinerary and visit the places of their interest.
3. Hold the map up to the light to look at the paper. Most maps made before the 1820s were made on hand-made paper. This paper was made by artisans who used a wire mesh to hold up the paper pulp. This wire mesh leaves a visible grid called "chain links" that are visible against a strong light source. Paper makers often had a watermark to identify themselves that is sometimes visible on bigger maps. If you dont have chain links on a map dated from the 1820s or earlier, then you have a map reproduction. 4. The majority of antique maps were taken out of old atlases, because of this there is often a fold in the middle of a map. This fold is where the map was bound in the book. Also atlas maps are worn from use at the corners, especially the right hand top or bottom corners. This is where most people would flip the pages. If your map doesnt have a center fold or looks too new, then it probably is.
A Scene of Relativity World wall maps can provide an interesting perspective on the world we live in. Not all world maps are in the standard format we are used to with the Northern Hemisphere in the top the map, with the Americas on the left (West) and China and the Indonesia on the right (East). There are some interesting world maps which are formatted in a different way. The Pacific Centred wall map Europe and the Americas on separate sides of the map. There are also upside down style maps of the world where the southern Hemisphere is now in the north of the map, and countries like Australia, Brazil and South Africa are now in the northerly part of the map. By looking on a world map at the area you live in, you can clearly see what countries and geographical features are around you which give a scene of relativity. Social Talking Point People find maps comforting as it gives them some grounding and something familiar to look at. World maps instantly draw people in to look at them. They notice where they live, where they have travelled and where they are currently. Even if they have seen a world map countless times before, there is sure to be something people see every time they look at a map. People comment on the different styles or designs of maps, colours used or the size and finish of a map.
