University of California Digital Map Collection

Since the Scout Report last visited the Digital Map Collection at the University of California, there have been many worthy additions to this cartographic cornucopia.

The maps are both historic and contemporary, and they include zoning maps, land use maps, historic maps of the state's coastline, and so on. Visitors can elect to browse all of the California digital maps, or the non-California digital maps here. Currently, there are over 475 California maps, and visitors can browse the offerings by call number title, keyword, title, and more. On the non-California side of things, there are over 10,000 maps, and they deal with just about every topic under the geographical sun. The site is rounded out by a list of digital topographic map sets, and a link to a more specialized search engine for the maps.
