This is the survey section. A survey differs from a map in that it is created to depict the boundaries of a specific tract of land. Maps on the other hand typically cover more territory and usually depict a broader range of information than a survey. Not surprisingly, the surveys most easily used by historians are those that are more map like. Whatever their sort, we hope to get a good broad, useful collection of surveys out here. If you have any ideas or material you think would be helpful if published here, please let me know.
