The National Map The National Map is now offering a collection of small-scale datasets that can be downloaded for free. Although the 1997-2014 Edition of the National Atlas of the United States was retired in September 2014, The National Map recognizes the importance of continuing to make a collection of the small-scale datasets, originally developed for the National Atlas, available to users. Small-scale maps have an advantage over large-scale maps when there is a need to show a large area in a single view. This makes small-scale maps an ideal solution for scientists, decision-makers, and planners needing to provide a geographical context for the research projects. Generally, certain geographical and feature details found in large-scale maps are limited or omitted in small-scale maps.

Hidden secrets of Yale’s 1491 world map revealed via multispectral imaging This map of the world drawn by Henricus Martellus in about 1491 was donated to Yale in 1962. Its faded condition (shown above) has stymied researchers for decades. The multispectral image of the map (below) reveals text and details invisible to the naked eye. Henricus Martellus, a German cartographer working in Florence in the late 15th century, produced a highly detailed map of the known world.
