The influence of Ogilby's atlas was widespread, and a network of roads subsequently appeared on many other English maps, such as George Willdey's plan, illustrated here, of post and cross (i.e. minor) routes. Ogilby’s work also enabled the compilation of different sorts of maps for professional and private travel. In 1677 a ‘distance line’ map came on to the English market. Produced by John Adams, this included 780 towns and villages in England and Wales, linked by a network of ruled lines with numbers indicating the mileage between them.
