|Dear Euratlas-Info Subscribers,
Here are some new features in the Euratlas website
The Post-Roads and Railroads Map of Germany 1852
In the Cartographies
section, you will find an outstanding 19th century travel map engraved
in Nürnberg. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that the 38 states of
the German Confederation are clearly outlined and the main railroads
and post roads show the growing European transportation network. The
neighboring regions, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Eastern France,
Northern Italy, Poland or Austria-Hungary are also shown with their
political organization and the main land itineraries and sea routes. In
addition, this map offers a list of the main railroad lines and a chart of the German states population in 1852.
HISATLAS - Historical and Political Maps of the Modern Age
If you don't know
the fine historical maps created by Joaquín de Salas Vara de
Rey, you will discover here a really complete historical atlas covering
with great accuracy the world history from 1789 on, to the present.
These maps were drawn in .gif format with bright colors and they wear
all the information about the new and old states and the administrative
changes. The whole world is depicted but a special attention was given
to the European countries. Hisatlas offers 225 detailed easily
printable maps, organized in 18 different sections: Europe, Latin
America, Africa, China etc. Try now the demo version.
Deutschland 1789 - Interaktiv
Thomas Höckmann who has drawn Germany 1789
is presenting now an enhanced version of his atlas. These 35 German
history maps are provided with direct links to the articles of
Wikipedia concerning the territories or
the noble houses. This atlas,
available in German only, is ideal for teaching, for genealogy and for
all people interested in history.
Wikipedia, the on-line encyclopedia, is growing at an incredible speed
in quantity and quality and, as the links will probably not change in
the future, the user will have direct access from the maps to a
constantly expanding knowledge base. Deutschland 1789-Interaktiv gives
you the advantage of going directly to the relevant page of a chosen
territory without any searching.
