Topographic Maps in the UB Libraries

UB Libraries Map Collection

The UB Map Collection includes topographical maps of the entire United States at scales of 1:24,000, 1:100,000, and 1:250,000; a complete set of Canadian topographic maps at 1:25,000; 1:50,000 and 1:100,000; World maps at 1:250,000 and 1:1,000,000; and maps of Europe, Mexico, and other areas at more detailed scales. U.S. topographical maps are arranged alphabetically by state, and then alphabetically by map name.

Historic or pre-1950 topographic maps (mostly 1:63,360) of New York State are also available in the Map Collection. These can be located using the Libraries' Catalog, and are available for use inside the Map Room. Ask for assistance at the Lockwood Memorial Library Reference desk.

Examples of historic Buffalo topos can seen here: Historical Topographic Maps of Buffalo.
