The Historic Atlas of Iowa Counties CD series may be an invaluable aid to Genealogists, Historians and researchers in search of 19th century Iowa places and place names. Each Iowa Atlas CD consists of a series of 9 bordering counties making up 1 of 11 Zones that depict all of Iowa's 99 counties. Each Zone Atlas contains high resolution scanned images of vintage 1875 county and city maps that are presented in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF).
The Adobe Acrobat Reader for MS Windows is needed to view, zoom, pan and print from the PDF map images contained in this atlas; and is included free on each CD. No other software is necessary. The map data has been created and configured using the latest version of the Adobe Acrobat Reader (6.0) for MS Windows (98, 98SE, XP, NT and 2000). The maps may be viewed in earlier versions of the software as well; however, optimum use of the data can be expected using the Adobe Reader 6.0 that is included on this CD.
