What are the Uses for maps?
One of the uses are if you are lost. One of the uses are if you are lost.
Topographic maps have multiple uses in the present day: any type of geographic planning or large-scale architecture; earth sciences and many other geographic disciplines; mining and other earth-based endeavours; and recreational uses such as hiking or, in particular, orienteering, which uses highly detailed maps in its standard requirements
Google Maps is based on a close variant of the Mercator projection. Google Maps uses the spherical Mercator, but the coordinates on Google Maps are the GPS coordinates based on the WGS 84 datum. Also, because Mercator projects the poles at infinity, Google Maps cannot show the poles so instead it cuts off coverage at 85.051125Â° north and south.
The United States Geological Survey uses the same legend on all of their maps to avoid confusion when looking at different maps. If one map used one symbol for a specific geologic type of marker and another map used another symbol, it would be extremely difficult to read the maps quickly and efficiently.
Unfortunately, Google has no way to show prev. versions. You can, infact, look at previous versions, but you cannot use it as the scripts will not load the same. The new version of Google Maps uses different processors that would not fit old scripts. Therefore, the old Google Maps will not work anymore.
