  • the names of each feature are generally that given on the map, except when it is useful to disambiguate or give a more commonly recognised name
  • in general, definite articles have been dropped from names — e.g. "King's Arms" instead of "The King's Arms"
  • in some instances the area names given are approximate and subjective, so should be only taken as a rough guide
  • the geographic coordinates given are in general very accurate (i.e. to within a few feet), and were obtained by one of two processes:
    • overlaying the historic map on Google Maps to identify the exact location
    • use of bespoke software which creates a virtual mesh over the historic map and is then trained by identifying locations which have not changed, such as road junctions, properties, bridges, churches, etc
