The earliest official state map of Pennsylvania was John Melish's 1822 map. That map was updated by William Morris in 1848. and J.W. Otley produced another large state map based on his own new surveys. The Otley map was reduced and first issued in 1852 by R.L. Barnes in a handy folder format suitable for travel. The map was intended to show the rapidly developing and expanding railroad, canal and road networks within Pennsylvania. Also shown are the counties, cities, towns, rivers and other topographic features.
