The present study seeks to provide meanings to distortions in historical maps from Edo Period by using Euclidean regression analysis, which is already theoretically systematized in cognitive map studies of geography. As for meanings or factors of distortions, cognitive and other possibilities are presented. In addition, the present study attempts to construct correction models of historical maps based on characteristics of distortions found in the above-mentioned process of providing meanings to distortions.
