Comparing maps

Compare and contrast the tourist map of Northern Ireland with the map of Ulster in 1786.  Think about:

  • What are the main features of each map?
  • Does each map show the height of the land?
  • What symbols are on each map?
  • Are there any symbols that are common to both maps?
  • What grid references does each map use?
  • What other differences can you spot when you compare old with new?

Following your discussion, present your findings to a parent, guardian or teacher.
