This is a page for the list of articles relating to maps of, or featuring, Chester.
This enables a shorthand to be used when referring to a map.
For example, in the graphic on the right, one can click on Lavaux Map and go straight to the details of the map. Another simple example would be "..the [[Lavaux Map]] of Chester does not show the gaol..".
By using the "pipe" command, it is possible to add further links to the image to go to sub-sections of pages. The wiki-markup text for the image to get this effect is:
[[File:Zquarry.jpg|350px|thumb|right|Detail from [[Lavaux Map]] of Chester showing the area around [[City_Walls#Northgate|Northgate]] before the [[Canal_and_Boatyard|Canal]]. [http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_de_Lavaux Lavaux] does not show any gaols on his map, but he may have personal reasons for that.]]
Using links in this manner makes it easy for people to be led from one subject to another.
Maps take up a lot of server space, and some of them may have copyright issues. So if you have a map of Chester and you think it would be useful to uplaod it to this Wiki please get in touch (using the discussion pages) first.
