Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States ESSENTIAL to an understanding of the history of the United States is some acquaintance with the natural environment that has conditioned and modified the growth of the nation. For this reason the present series of maps illustrating important aspects of the natural environment precedes the more strictly historical parts of the Atlas. The institutions and population of the United States are predominantly of European origin. The Atlantic Ocean has been the passageway over which the peoples and civilization of the Old World have come to the New. The very first maps, therefore—those of Plate 1—show North America in relation to the Atlantic and to Europe and furnish a means of comparing the geographical setting of life on the two continents.

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. The choice of small-scale maps always comes down to the intended use of the final map.
