OK, here's the second set of Usenet maps, again in raw plot and SVG form.
The only difference with the "g" maps, produced with the gmap.leroy script,
seems to be the addition of a few graphical icons.
I'm pretty sure this is how they would have looked originally, cluttered as
they are. The nice thing about them being in a vector format, though, is
that you could blow them up to poster size if you wanted to.
