Some early township surveys are shown, as are the Denver & South Platte RR, Kansas Pacific RR, Colorado Central RR, Denver & Rio Grande RR and Denver Pacific RR. Very few towns south of the Continental Divide, although Breckinridge, Fair Play, Canon City, Greenwood, Colfax, Ft. Garland, San Luis, Saguache and a handful of others are shown.

One of the earliest obtainable large format separate maps of Colorado Territory and the first to appear in a commercial atlas.
