On this site a locality is a place located in a country with its current spelling. Cartophilia will usually be old towns, even hamlets. When inserting a map we will refer to the municipality of the time.
When we write the title of a map, we will give the locality that is as it is on the map with its old spelling. When one wants to go more finely in the definition of the place of a map one can associate one or several localized points (for example a station, a school or a church etc ....).
As this site is a site devoted mainly to Belgian cartophilia, only the Belgian localities are listed in a complete way. The localities of other countries are present only summarily in order to complete the files of the publishers or personalities.
