The Douglass blank map of the world in 1800 robo diglet on deviantart World Map Of 1800 1024 X 463 pixels is very rare, but in the distance more accessible is Braddock Mead's "Map of the Most Inhabited allocation of extra England," published by Thomas Jefferys in 1755. Mead's map follows rather nearby that of Douglass, while with some significant improvements. For example, in Massachusetts Mead supplementary extra area names (such as "Pentusok," now Pittsfield), introduced county boundaries, and associated Cape Ann to the mainland whereas Douglass had depicted it as an island.
Following the Revolution, the presidency of Massachusetts urgently required an accurate blank map of the world in 1800 robo diglet on deviantart World Map Of 1800 1024 X 463 pixels for at least three administrative objectives: calculating tax allotments to the towns based upon estate valuations, supporting the sale of public estate to pay off deed debts, and informing infrastructure development. Existing maps were too outmoded and small scale to be of use. For example, dozens of townships conventional after the 1750s were not shown upon the Douglass and Mead maps.
This presented the legislature with a dilemma, as public funding for a state Map would have been prohibitively expensive. so in 1774 it resorted to an unfunded mandate, requiring each town in Massachusetts to conduct a survey of its territory and give in a plan to the Secretary of State. These would then be compiled and where critical reconciled to build the blank map of the world in 1800 robo diglet on deviantart World Map Of 1800 1024 X 463 pixels.
