Sanborn maps are large-scale plans of American cities and towns, created 1867-1970. They were created to assist fire insurance companies to assess the risk associated with insuring a property. The maps were drawn at a scale of 50 feet to one inch. ProQuest Sanborn Maps Geo Edition provides geo-coding and indexing by address for a selection of Sanborn maps. Searching can be done by address or by latitutde/longitude coordinates. Maps from different years can be layered, including modern maps using the Google Map interface.
Eight states are included: Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
Cities included: Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Newark, Philadelphia, Richmond, Seattle and Washington DC.
For other all areas use Digital Sanborn Maps 1867-1970, without geo-coding.

Like the first edition, the second edition of the Encyclopedia of Stress covers nearly every conceivable aspect and ramification of stress including a wide range of related topics such as neuroimmune interactions, cytokines, enzymatic disorders, effects on the cardiovascular system, immunity and inflammation, and physical illnesses. Over the last decade, scientists have presented convincing research showing that psychological stress increases vulnerability to disease. They now understand more clearly that stress may be the thread tying together illnesses that were previously believed to be unrelated. Bone loss, increased abdominal fat, and damaged memory cells in the hippocampus have been linked to elevated cortisol levels. Building on the success of the first edition, this completely revised work surveys the vast amount of research generated in the past five years, resulting in a substantial revision with over 30% new material and over 100 new entries. Expanded sections include Animal Studies, Anxiety and Depression, Drugs, Depression, Disasters, and Psychological and Other Therapies
