The details include counties, county seats, railroads, topographical and watershed with contours at 250' intervals. This map, by Robert T. Hill, a widely known scholar, teacher and geologist, brought new sophistication to Texas cartography and helped set new scientific standards for the region's cartography. It was published in USGS Bulletin #190 - A Gazetteer of Texas and Topographical Atlas of the U.S., Physical geography of the Texas Region.
