Maps of businesses have long been prepared by insurance companies in order to determine insurance rates. Although originally prepared for insurance companies, the maps today have great research value for those interested in factory design and construction and business history. Although the Sanborn insurance maps (in the Society's Library) are the most well-known, other companies, such as the Associated Mutual Insurance Company (later the Associated Factory Mutual Fire Insurance Company) also prepared such maps.
