    Default Has anyone seen or used this as a ghosttown map?

    Found this link on a news page for crimemapping. It is used to show crimes in cities in the U.S.I found that when you zoom in, smaller towns appear on the map, including ones that are ghosttowns. There are plenty here in Nevada, and it appears that they are included on this map. I know that some were railroad siding names as well, but found this interesting. I did check other states, and found it fairly consistant.

    Wow....it IS a cool map! Thanks for posting this. Interestingly though, when you zoom in further some of the towns disappear, such as Eagleville, NV, north of Rawhide, making it difficult to locate the exact location of the townsite.

    "Ghosttrain"? If you like "ghost railroads" there is a website for folks like us: http://www.abandonedrails.com/

    Thanks for the link ,John! I moved to Nevada from Colorado, and hiked, or drove on many old grades.
