The Map that Made Baltimore: Thomas Poppleton

A FREE Members Only Program Join Edward C. Papenfuse, Maryland State Archivist, retired, for an engaging look at one of Baltimore’s earliest maps and the bankrupt London surveyor who brought order to the boomtown chaos of a growing city. How did Poppleton’s use of military triangulation, rather than the compass and chain, produce an extraordinarily precise map, one that remains accurate today.
