Abstract

Mark Jefferson provided early cartographic attempts to map the world's railroad networks, invoking concepts on the advance of civilization, and progress. While these concepts have been challenged, his use of graphic elements of buffers and catchment zones link to current practices in geographic analysis and transportation research.
