  • Military maps feature the linear tracks of military expeditions and/or the outlines of military formations.
  • Exploration maps feature the linear tracks of explorers and the features they have encountered.
  • Economic maps feature the point location not only of populated places, but of economic resources, manufactures, and industrial production, as well as linear routes of trade.
