Topographic maps

Topographic Map Set Holdings

About 500 topographic map sets provide detailed coverage for much of the world at scales from 1:50,000 to 1:1,000,000. This includes comprehensive coverage for Canada, excellent coverage for the United States and western Europe, and less complete coverage for Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Australasia.

The majority of the foreign topographic map series have been put in storage, and retrievals are made from Monday to Friday at 11:00 a.m. Topographic map series that are kept on the 5th floor are filed at the beginning of all other maps for that region.

You can find a listing of our Canadian topographic map collections here. Additionally, Ontario historical topographic map sheets can be found on Scholars GeoPortal at scales of 1:25,000 here and 1:63,360 here.

A Note on Canadian Topographic Maps: Canada 1:25 000, 1:50 000, 1:250 000, and smaller scales are held in the map library; superseded maps are held in storage in Robarts Library (B2). Ontario Base Maps at 1:10 000 and 1:20 000, and Ontario 1:100 000 as well as other series maps from other provinces are held in the map library in paper format for selected regions, and for all of Ontario in microfiche format, as well as in digital format (PDF, Shapefile and Esri Coverage)
