Connecticut USGS Topographic Map Collection

The University of Connecticut Libraries Map and Geographic Information Center - MAGIC offers a variety of options for viewing and downloading topographic maps for the state of Connecticut. Options range from Map Mash-ups which enable users to search for an address and view topographic maps for the area for a range of years, view individual topographic maps from the Connecticut USGS Topographic Map Collection on Flickr, and download georeferenced full-quality TIFF images for each topographic map from the MAGIC website. Included below are multiple options for viewing and downloading Connecticut USGS topographic maps.

Connecticut USGS Topographic Maps Mash-up

Use the following map to view topographic maps for an area of interest in Connecticut. Search for a town or an address in Connecticut and you can compare topographic maps for an area using the drop down menus for each map viewer included below.

MAGIC_WMS_instructionsAttention ArcGIS and other GIS software users! The USGS Topographic Map layer mosaics are available via MAGIC's WMS.

Note: These images are georeferenced scans of USGS topographic maps. Each mosaic is a set of similar maps from the same era. Some of these mosaics were made from published georeferenced USGS digital raster graphics (DRG) datasets and others were created from scans of maps held at the University of New Hampshire Library or here at MAGIC. Mosaics not made from the USGS DRG files were georeferrenced by student employees at MAGIC.
