Mapping is an art and science. Art because it represents our piece of earth in an artistic way. And science because the representation has to meet exacting standards. Say for a map on a million scale, things lesser than a few hundred meters will be just points. So many small lakes may just disappear on a million map and similarly many small roads will just not show up. Just try zooming in and out on Google Maps to see how it behaves. You want to see some maps just go over to www.mapsandlocations.com. It describes different types of maps. You can also ask for an editable PDF or Illustrator map from the site administrator to experiment with. And how would you edit the PDF or Illustrator map, well just download fully functional Illustrator CS3 from Adobe Website. You can also use Macromedia Freehand for editing vector maps.
Very popular antique maps are fetching very high prices at the auction block, because of this many forgeries have appeared as well as numerous copies of these maps. Map reproductions are not worth anything regardless of what the seller tells you. We will give you a few tips to distinguish a fake antique map from a real antique map. First let us talk about copies, forgeries and reproductions of antique maps. Cartographers have copied each others maps for centuries and have improved on them as well. These old maps can be valuable since they were done when the information on them was valid and useful. They are genuine historical documents. However, recent copies of old maps that depict geographical information from centuries past are made with the intent of offering decoration and sometimes historical insight to their buyers. The value of these map reproductions is often marketed to unknowing customers by claiming that the copy is of a rare map or that is was made using some fancy printing technique. The truth is that a copy of a rare map is not rare, it is the original map that is rare. The copy is worthless and the same goes for the fancy printing.
If you travel often, it might not be a hard idea to acquire several maps of various locations that you are interested in traveling to. Once arriving at your destination, if you are still are anxious for travel maps, hotels are another place to seek these maps. You can obtain them either by simply asking the front desk for maps they are able to give, or by visiting the gift shop. Theyll likewise have brochures obtainable for their destination, which will incorporate small maps of the field. There are many ways to getting travel maps, and while one source is not better then another, the most educated traveler will say that using two to three sources for obtaining travel maps will broadly speaking be the wisest idea.
Many but not all maps are drawn to a scale, allowing the reader to infer the actual sizes of, and distances between, depicted objects. A larger scale shows more detail, thus requiring a larger map to show the same area. For example, maps designed for the hiker are often scaled at the ratio 1:24,000, meaning that 1 of any unit of measurement on the map corresponds to 24,000 of that same unit in reality; while maps designed for the motorist are often scaled at 1:250,000. Maps which use some quality other than physical area to determine relative size are called cartograms. A famous example of a map without scale is the London Underground map, which best fulfils its purpose by being less physically accurate and more visually communicative to the hurried glance of the commuter. This is not a cartogram (since there is no consistent measure of distance) but a topological map that also depicts approximate bearings. The simple maps shown on some directional road signs are further examples of this kind.
As you might be aware, there are more than 3000 counties or county-equivalent administrative units in the United States of America. There are on average 62 counties per state. The state with the state with the highest number is Texas, and the lowest number of counties is Delaware. It would take you an enormous amount of time and effort if you try to create a US map with all counties by drawing from scratch using a drawing software such as Photoshop or PowerPoint. You can save your time by buying map templates for the US, including map templates for all the US counties. If you need to use the map in your Microsoft Word, PowerPoint or Excel files, then all you need is a vector map graphic file. In order to be able to set color for each different county, you need to ensure the map graphic file you purchase contains multiple layers, so that each layer can have its own color and attribute settings.
While Map Messaging services have additional features such as: the immediate receipt of acknowledgment or reply, group chatting, conference services (including voice and video), conversation logging and file transfer in Real-time map application (GPassenger) and Mobility application (MobilePassenger). MIMS allows effective and efficient communication, featuring immediate receipt of acknowledgment or reply. In certain cases Map Messaging involves additional features, which make it even more popular, i.e. to see the other party real-time location on map, e.g. by using satellite-cams, or real-time positioning of each other by GPS on internet/electronic map (MobilePassenger), or finding friend or Singles (Human) as shown a human icon on map ( Red as unavailable-offline/ green as available-online) by real-time positioning on single application (SingleG Application/Gpsignal). It is possible to save a conversation for later reference. Instant messages are typically logged in a local message history which closes the gap to the persistent nature of maps and facilitates quick exchange of information like URLs or document snippets (which can be unwieldy when communicated via IM) than (Mapsignal).
