Maps: Gazetteers

A guide to finding and using printed and digital maps.

Gazetteers are indexes to places.  There are two types of gazetteer - those which simply give coordinates and/or codified information, and those which give a verbal description of a place.  The latter will usually also give coordinates.  Both types are listed here.
