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.
Conformal projection: These projections maintain angular relationships and show accurate shapes while covering small areas. Such maps are useful for navigational or meteorological purposes where angular relationships are important. Equidistant projection: Maps that maintain accurate distances along given lines or from the center of the projection are based on this principle of equidistant projection. Such maps are used for navigation and for radio and seismic mapping. The Equirectangular projection and the Equidistant Conic projection are two examples of this category. Azimuthal (or zenithal) projection: A projection that maintains accurate angular relationships and directions from a given central point use this projection. Maps for aeronautical purposes use this principle. The Lambert Azimuthal Equal-Area projection and the Gnomonic projection are examples of how azimuthal projection is used for map making.
A world wall map can have a range of benefits, from the cultural and social to the geographical and educational. This article presents an overview of the cultural and social impacts that maps have on people. Childs Play Children love to use their imagination and play games where they pretend to be someone or something. Children can use world maps to pretend they live in another country and imagine what life would be like in a different continent, with a different climate and different neighbouring countries. It helps children to appreciate and understand that life may be very different in other countries to what they are familiar with. Countries near the equator will be hotter and there will need to be adaptations in living conditions. By looking at a world map, adults too can let their imagination run wild. Whether for planning a trip or a holiday or simply looking at the distance between countries, a wall-map of the world is key for sparking the imagination.
Chennai, the capital of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, presents an outstanding blend of traditionalism and modernity. It is regarded as the cultural hub of South India and the Detroit of India, both. Ancient temples, long traditions of music, arts and dance, and age-old customs make it the foremost place in South India to understand the regional culture. Modernity, on the other hand, is reflected in its being a major IT hub in the country and the choicest city for the automakers to build their main manufacturing units. The tall skyscrapers and contemporary buildings will convince you of the same. The fourth most populous metropolitan area in India, Chennai is only the third, after Mumbai and Delhi, in the number of expatriates in the country. Definitely the most sought-after city in South India, it has been ranked as the only city in South Asia to go around the world by a leading international journal.
These arent like those maps you get at the gas station when you need to get from Topeka to Las Vegas. They offer more than just the highways and byways of the roads. Instead, a good atlas will give you the important information in addition to the means to travel from one place to another. Many a traveler has their travel map pinned up on the wall with many brightly colored pins sticking in the destinations they have visited. Sometimes the pins are coded in a way that says something like "Red is the places I have been, Blue is the places I have lived, and Yellow is the places I want to go someday." Of course the color scheme is different depending on what you like or want to say about the map on your wall.
Since the early days of humanity, people have created maps. At the beginning very simple, and later more and more complex. A map is a simplified depiction of a space which highlights relations between components (objects, regions) of that space. Most usually a map is a two-dimensional, geometrically accurate representation of a three-dimensional space; e.g., a geographical map. More generally, maps can be devised to represent any local property of the world or part of it, or any other space, such as the brain. Map-making dates back to the Stone Age and appears to predate written language by several millennia. One of the oldest surviving maps is painted on a wall of the Catal Huyuk settlement in south-central Anatolia (now Turkey); it dates from about 6200 BC. One who makes maps professionally or privately is called a cartographer.
