    Are there good maps on Internet?
    From: Alexandre Eremenko

    I already asked this question, but this was in the middle of a technical
    conversation with Bill Morris on details of his Lunar spreadsheet,
    so now I want to address it to a broader audience of Nav List readers.
    Do there exist good maps on Internet? Let me try to explain what I need.
    I am reading various books on old exploration travels, like
    Baffin, Barentz, Cook or Vancouver.
    I need a good map to refer to.
    I mean a map which would have islands, capes, rivers, straits, bays, montains
    etc. and other geographical features, with their names.
    And mostly of uninhabited places, like Canadian Arctic islands.
    I was unable to locate on the Internet anything better than my
    wall World map. I understand that I can buy navigational charts
    at $40 a piece. But it is hard for me to believe that some such maps
    are not freely available on Internet. Google maps gives only
    a contour map (only sore line, no features, no names) for uninhabited
    On the other hand, excellent maps of the sky are available:-)
