All series of topographic maps created by the US Army Map Service

All series of topographic maps created by the US Army Map ServiceThe exceptional online resources of the Perry-Castañeda Library of the University of Texas at Austin provide a series of topographic maps created by the US Army Map Service. They date primarily from the 1940s and 1950s, so they are more detailed in areas of military concern during and after World War II. You can see the full TABLE OF CONTENTS. The USGS quadrangles are listed in the USA INDEX.


While the maps are somewhat outdated, they are excellent for locating tiny villages, finding islands which are not visible or named, and obtaining topographic details.

When using them in conjunction with Google Earth, it is often rather difficult to quickly find the specific map which covers an area of interest. This posting is designed to provide both the global area quadrangles and the city maps which show far greater details.
