AMERICA IN PERSPECTIVE- OLD MAPS: US APP REVIEW

The US is one of the biggest countries in the world. It is also rich in history. Each state will have its own unique histories to share and the national history is one that really takes a lot of reading to find. However, with historical maps, you can get a glimpse of these historical elements and transform the national and local histories of the country. Maps are not just there to tell you where west and east is or where the mountains are. If you are interested about maps pertaining to the US in different events and happenings, you should definitely consider the Old Maps: US app. This application is filled with high quality maps of the US, its different regions as well as historical maps.

The app is filled with more than 100 maps of the US. It makes sense since it is a pretty massive country and it is quite difficult to encompass all of its unique attributes in 1 map. It contains maps of the US territories as it was starting to take shape in the 1800s. There are also maps that show all the highways that run across the United States. There are also geographical and maps relating to territories outside the mainland. There were a lot of rapid changes ever since the United States unified into a nation and it is interesting to see how each element becomes part of that whole diverse historical aspect of the country. Take advantage of this one and you might be surprised to see what unique details you have not seen before.
