Using Map Overlays

The overlay, which is included with the maps, have been reproduced from a modern map. The purpose is to show the changes in the state over a period of 100 years. Place names may appear in the older map which are absent on the current map. Some of the locations may have been early stage stations, mining camps, ranches or early town sites later abandoned.

The different locations noted in boundaries, landmarks and place names are evident. Being aware of the difficulties encountered by the early surveyors, due to lack of knowledge and primitive equipment, we understand the errors.

As shown in the photos:
1. Locate a site on the map.
2. Place the overlay on the map.
3. Place a pointer on the site - insert a white card between the map and overlay and the site will be located on the modern road system.

Accuracy and scale of the maps are not guaranteed, however, one may locate a general area of interest with this technique.
