Do you have questions about local history and geography? The web mapping

We're calling this category of Internet geographic information
systems "Basemaps Plus". The implication is that they
include some generic feature data (hydrography,
roads, county/state/national boundaries, etc) in addition to
typical basemaps (orthophotos, topographic maps, elevation
models, etc). These sites can be very useful for on-screen
exploration and simple map-making projects.
