Rare Old Historic Antique Nautical Chart Reproduction showing Coast of New England 1859. These preliminary triangulation charts are considered the first map data base in the United States. A baseline was established using extremely precise measuring instruments and spider web thread secured to the end of fixed measuring rods, which were brought together under a micropsope. Once a baseline was established, triangles were run out providing the first unbroken survey of the coastline.
