Thomson's Atlas of Scotland was the first since Blaeu's famous publication to map the land from
accurate surveys and collected information. He announced that: 'the New County Atlas of Scotland
will either be derived from Actual Surveys; or where such cannot be obtained, from other authentic
materials, so corrected by the Attestators, and their Assistants, as to ensure greater accuracy
than is to be found in any book of the kind published in this or any other Country.
