Here is a link to an article that appears on Directions yesterday that I thought many Cartotalkers would be interested in:

Comments are welcomed.

Thanks

Thanks for posting. Maybe this will encourage agencies to produce more georeferenced transit system maps.

One map I would love to see added to the store is Viele's historical map of Manhattan (http://www.davidrums...m/maps6128.html). You could walk the old shoreline, and see where hills were leveled. Engineers would be interersted in the location of old stream beds.

Thanks for your comment, Danielle.
Indeed we do hope that everyone will start seeing the mobile and tablet marketplace a a viable one for selling maps and that they'll produce more maps for these devices.
We have a copy of that Manhattan map and if all goes well you should see it in our map store very soon.
I will let you know when it is available.
Regards
Ted

Further to your initial post and my follow-up earlier today, I am pleased to inform that the 1865 Manhattan Viele sanitation map is now available for free download from the Avenza PDF Maps map store.
Look under Recently Added or Historical to find it.
Enjoy.

Regards
Ted
