Resources to Learn More About Maps
What really drives us is our interest in maps and our curiosity about the stories that lie behind them.
Neatline has developed our trademark descriptions, which are some of the most in-depth studies of individual maps that you will find on the market. Moreover, we are dedicated to sharing our knowledge, and making sure that our material and insight reaches far beyond our customers. We want the world to appreciate what maps tell us about ourselves.
Educators or dealers?
We invite you to explore some of our educational materials below: watch some our videos, surf through our cartographers index, or sit back and take the time to read some of the exciting descriptions we have provided for our best maps. Neatline’s trademark descriptions do not just describe, they elucidate the maps’ historical context and explain why they are important historical documents.
For educators who are interested in incorporating maps and cartography into their teaching, or who wish to learn more about how maps can be integrated as great educational tools, please feel free to reach out to us. We are always open to new and inspiring collaborations.
