Mapping. Many web sites allow you to keep track of all kinds of
experiences, from birds you have seen to counties you have visited and
even paper money you have handled. This site allows users to map which
portions of interstate highways they have travelled, or "clinched," and
calculates how many miles of the Interstate Highway System they have

The symbols do not appear in the legend, and do not seem to represent any feature that would occur at the area at which they are located. It is likely that the "erroneous" graphics were intentionally placed in the atlases as a safeguard against copyrighting. If another company printed an atlas of the state and the graphic appeared in it, it would be obvious that a DeLorme map had been used for the source data.|

|Milestones. For more
than 2,000 years, highway builders have erected milestone to indicate
the distance to and from key landmarks such as cities, towns and
geographic features. During the past two millennia, roadside signage
has undergone an evolution. For most of this time, roads have been
delineated with stone markers. During the past 150-200 years, wooden
fingerboards began replacing milestones due their low cost and the ease
with which they can be constructed. During the early automobile era,
metal signs emerged. Of these, the porcelain enamel signs proved to be
the most enduring of the modern signs. In recent years, highway
departments have used a variety of media to mark highways, most of
which have an expected life span of about 2-5 years. This site is
dedicated to the study of milestones.
