The Douglass filedecolonization world in 1945 ensvg wikimedia commons Map Of World 1945 1024 X 588 pixels is very rare, but far afield more accessible is Braddock Mead's "Map of the Most Inhabited allowance of supplementary England," published by Thomas Jefferys in 1755. Mead's map follows rather to the side of that of Douglass, though behind some significant improvements. For example, in Massachusetts Mead further supplementary area names (such as "Pentusok," now Pittsfield), introduced county boundaries, and related Cape Ann to the mainland whereas Douglass had depicted it as an island.
Following the Revolution, the organization of Massachusetts urgently required an accurate filedecolonization world in 1945 ensvg wikimedia commons Map Of World 1945 1024 X 588 pixels for at least three administrative objectives: calculating tax allotments to the towns based upon land valuations, supporting the sale of public land to pay off feat debts, and informing infrastructure development. Existing maps were too obsolescent and little scale to be of use. For example, dozens of townships normal after the 1750s were not shown upon the Douglass and Mead maps.
This presented the legislature behind a dilemma, as public funding for a welcome Map would have been prohibitively expensive. correspondingly in 1774 it resorted to an unfunded mandate, requiring each town in Massachusetts to conduct a survey of its territory and concede a plan to the Secretary of State. These would next be compiled and where essential reconciled to produce the filedecolonization world in 1945 ensvg wikimedia commons Map Of World 1945 1024 X 588 pixels.
