Animated/Interactive Maps

(1) Transportation routes:

Increased dependence on land travel. The popularity of road travel for recreation and transport of goods, materials and people.

An increasing level of detail is displayed on maps from the 2000s. The colour image is from 2006, and the black and white from 1933.

Roll your mouse over the image to see the colour image change to black and white image. Increased level of detail

(3) Content/Purpose of maps:

The purpose of the maps in the 2000s are different than they were in the 1700's. The maps from the 1700s and 1800s were mostly have record of property boundaries & the outline of sunken land, present day maps contain a much different level of detail and specialization. A greater range of maps have been recently created, including maps showing:

  • Wetland classification
  • Outline of Protected Natural Areas
  • Ecosite classification
  • (4) Legend & Title block:

    Nearly all of the present day maps contain clearly defined legends. We saw this start in the late 1900's and this has continued to present day maps.

    A Legend is a visual representation of the maps contents. For example, in the image below, it shows what each colour in a map represents. So, if we look at this map, we can find out that the Blue colour reprents Lakes.

    A Title block tells us what area the chart/map covers. In addition it may tell us the scale, projection, and datum of the map. In the following image we find:
  • Area covered: Grand Lake Protected Area
  • Scale: 1:45,000
  • Scalebar
  • North Arrow
  • Date:2002-11-07
  • Author: New Brunswick, Natural Resources
