This CD-ROM contains a complete scan of the original 1860 wall map. The
61"x63" map has been scanned at 300dpi (dots per inch) and is presented
here in two separate formats, PDF (1) and JPEG (2-4).
1. As one full image as a PDF file, at 150 dpi. This file is very
convenient to use. Most readers already have a copy of the widely used
Adobe Reader software needed to view the map in this format. For those
who do not have a copy, we provide a free copy of Adobe Reader 7. All
but the finest lettering is legible in this format.
2. As one full image as a JPEG image file at 150 dpi, and at 75
dpi. The smaller version is provided for those who have older computers.
3. Divided into 4 full quality 300dpi JPEG files. The original
map at the Vermont Historical Society exists as 4 separate sheets, and
we scanned them as is. We issue images divided in the this manner to
make viewing possible on the average computer. These are are large, high
4. Divided into counties. Because these sections are smaller
files, they are easier to work with when looking at individual towns.
