A triangulation diagram appears on the reverse of this drawing. This was an essential tool enabling the draughtsman to plot topographical features. There is no hill-sketching on this drawing, suggesting an unfinished or intermediate version of the map. Yellow lines represent the borders of the printed sheet.
