In the s and 60s, he focused on mapping of Massachusetts, first producing detailed maps of Massachusetts towns and then a set of wall-size Massachusetts county maps. Coast Survey. Thus, it appears that Walling utilized existing state and federal data to play out the topographical and substantial geographical data for his mapping and then filled in details through ground-based work by himself and his staff. Later in his career Walling worked for the U. Coast and Geodetic Survey and then the U. Geological Survey, primarily on projects related to the mapping of New England and the Appalachians.

Coastal Survey and was the basis for producing the H. Whiting map. The topographical work comes from the late s and the hydrography derives from the early s. Marindin , hydrographer who provided the details on the bathymetry for the map. As related in The Meeting of Land and Sea, Mitchell and Whiting used this and subsequent work on the Vineyard, Katama Bay, and the opening at Norton Point to explain the broad dynamics of coastal erosion and the specific details of the forces that open and maintain, or lead to the closure of the bays and ponds on the south shore of the Vineyard.

These studies are related in a series of U. As noted on this map this specific chart relates to the report for The release of the report was delayed when the original was destroyed in the great Boston Fire of , which destroyed 65 acres of downtown Boston. Aspects of the long-standing research by these two men are apparent in the details and insets of this map. From Whiting these include the light tracing of the position of the southern opening of Katama Bay , , and vertical cross-sections of the barrier beach that seals the bay along with comparative cross-sections from the barrier beach at the Nantucket haulover and at Scituate on Cape Cod.

His inset graph comparing the tides inside and out served to bolster his explanation that the opening in the barrier beach was maintained by the tremendous erosive forces of the currents that sweep through that narrow channel, driven by the height differential of the water inside and outside the bay.

The planned community at Oklahoma was one of many that struggled to get built and did not deliver on the investment return anticipated.

This original plan would have placed about homes on this oftentimes steep and rugged section of Vineyard Haven that lies delightfully hidden between Lagoon Pond and the Vineyard Haven-Edgartown Road. Surveyor Richard L. Pease, nephew of Jeremiah Pease, undertook considerable work on the Vineyard, and was much involved in major development plans such as Lagoon Heights. Pease teamed up again with Civil Engineer John Mullin to produce this map showing the detailed layout for Lagoon Heights on the eastern side of Lagoon Pond.

In addition to the fine detail on the proposed development, which includes a cliff ramble, bath houses, and insets of some prospective structures along with numerous parks, the left side of the map contains a view from the site across the Lagoon towards West Chop. The scene captured in this time of extensive deforestation and intensive maritime activity is of a wide open landscape, a dozen or more large ships at anchor off Eastville with its strip of houses and other structures, and a solitary building situated on the northeast corner of the Lagoon.

The value of this plan lies in its insights into the larger landscape as well as the expansive proposals for development on the Vineyard. Although construction did proceed and Barnes Road swings around this area today, many of the proposed details never materialized. The approach he took was to use good design and to include simple detail of the topography, soundings and other features. The oblique angle of this map provides a tremendous perspective on the character of the landscape across the broader area of East Chop, the north end of the Lagoon, Vineyard Haven, and out onto West Chop in Eastville remains thriving with two wharfs — New York and Norris named for Howes Norris ; the detailed insets help interpret the busy scene in Oak Bluff with the two tabernacles, Union Chapel, Cottage City and Highlands wharfs, and many hotels including the Highland House adjacent the Agassiz Summer Institute; to the south the road traversed Island Lake Farm Pond in the direction of a much exaggerated Lagoon Heights and to the west of town most of the area between Eastville, the Lagoon and the Heights remained empty; towards Vineyard Haven the Beach Road was fully connected over a bridge and two small bridges or walkways provided access out towards Cedar Neck; and out on West Chop the land remained largely forested.

The details for the Lagoon Heights development owned and marketed by the Lagoon Heights Land Company, State Street in Boston, are fleshed out well beyond those on the map by Pease.

Many modern streets are depicted — among them Lindon, California, Columbia, Washington and Pennsylvania Avenues — but Maine has become Barnes Road and Front Street has been reduced to just a vestige of a planned formal eastern end to the new neighborhood. See progress map of Includes an inset of progress around Lake Champlain.

The USCGS remapped the coastline approximately every 30 years or so, thus their maps are a valuable source of information about changing coastlines, ocean depths, wetlands, and development patterns. These maps have been used by scientists across the United States to understand both the historical past and modern environmental challenges. Past the glory days of whaling and Dr. Notable features include the railroad smoking its way across the Katama Plain towards its rail station near the current County Jail located on the old site of Dr.

Among the many striking aspects of this map is the contrast between the tightly developed qualities of the Oak Bluffs, Campground, and Highlands areas and locations further out on East Chop or back down towards Lagoon Heights where Prospect House is the distinguishing feature. The accompanying description below provides much information on this map within the context of the larger effort by NOAA to make the work of the Coastal Survey widely available. Notes on the map indicate that this was first published in , the topography was conducted by H. Whiting and W. Vinal between and , and the map was published in The rescue effort concluded in and hard copies of those documents are available at the National Archives.

Today, NOAA continues scanning efforts with partners such as the Library of Congress to fill holes in the Collection and ensure that the best digital copy of our maps and charts are available. We strongly recommend that you visually verify the accuracy of the supplemental information provided by comparing it against the scanned document. All we ask is that you cite the website in some way.

The preferred format for citation is as follows:. As part of its regular operations the U. Army Corps of Engineers regularly took on assignments of evaluating proposals to build coastal protection and improve harbor, oftentimes generating detailed plans, costs estimates, and recommendations. In the case of this spectacular proposal to construct a 2-mile long breakwater across the mouth of Vineyard Harbor which was not approved. The declining traffic through Vineyard Sound and past the Island as well as the long-standing proposal to construct a canal across the base of Cape Cod did not justify the extraordinary expense.

This and other versions of the map and plan are all that remain of a project that came too late and brought too little return to be pursued. The modern reality is a mixture of plan and alternatives. Much of the data was collected three to five decades before publication. This plan by the U.

Corps of Engineers laid out a proposal to strengthen the seawalls along the outer stretches of East and West Chops. The continual erosion at these locations had been measured by Henry Whiting and identified as a long-term threat as the southern recession of these headlands had the effect of decreasing the protected area of mooring within the harbor. This project was subsequently undertaken and effective shoreline protection was installed. An updated chart showing the waters and coastline of the Vineyard.

Through time, the USCGS surveys become less and less concerned with features on land and tend to have more detail for mariners. The map by G. Eldridge is considered decorative rather than detailed and is sold as a reproduction in Vineyard shops today. In addition to main roads, regional ferry routes, and major sights, the map identifies the locations of a number of major landowners e.

It has at least one glaring error: Duartes Pond is both mis-spelled and incorrectly located much further west of the head of Lagoon Pond than it occurs. Background on Eldridge and his related map are provided by Boston Rare Maps. The version provides a few names of the houses of local residents but omits the camps and large estates. Eldridge of Chatham, Mass. In contrast to the complex charts issued by the U. A second edition of the map appeared in with a number of changes and additions and is much more common than the first edition offered here.

PhD Thesis Harvard University. This map depicts the clay exposures that Wigglesworth located during his fieldwork and is interpreted by David R. Foster and mapped in the book as indicating the location of open pits where clay was dug for various industrial and commercial uses, presumably largely at the Paint Mill on Roaring Brook.

As such, it is the only guide that the author is aware of to the location of clay pits, which were widespread on the western moraine. Black and white photographs from the thesis depict many of these pits in various states of use and vegetation regrowth when abandoned. After producing his classic study on the Vineyard with his mentor Professor J.

A map made most interesting by the fact that it provides detail on the landscape in the late s. This is a time when we also have the first aerial photographs available. Note the forested condition of West Chop. The photographs are notable in displaying the forested nature of West Chop and the early stages of land clearance and development for Mink Meadow Golf Course, the electrical transmission lines coming from Woods Hole, and housing.
