Hi! jimbo72, welcome to AMHD :)


is there a difference between a vicinty map and a location mapYes there is.
One is an area surrounding.
The other is the actual co-ordinate.

Is the location in this vicinity?


vi·cin·i·ty/vəˈsinətē/
Noun: The area near or surrounding a particular place.


Lo·ca·tion (l-kshn)
n.
1. The act or process of locating.
2. A place where something is or could be located; a site.
3. A site away from a studio at which part or all of a movie is shot: filming a Western on location in the Mexican desert.
4. A tract of land that has been surveyed and marked off.


A vicinity map would show a larger area than a location map.
