I was told years ago that the makers of state highway maps, often made small mistakes, left off the name of some small town or a route number just for the purpose of catching someone else in the act of copying their map without permission or credit. But those were big companies going to considerable expense to do a map. That was in the days when I was doing PR for historical sites for the Nebraska State Historical society, 20 -30 years ago.
