The CIA produces an excellent series of sheet maps, atlases, map folios, and pocket-sized street map guides. Our holdings include more than 1,600 items dating from 1967 to the present. Overall coverage is worldwide--cities, countries, transnational regions, continents, oceans, and assorted territories and geopolitical features are covered.
CIA maps often depict basic political and geographic features; they may also depict social, demographic, or geographic themes, such as religion, ethnicity, vegetation, and land use. Scales and detail vary widely, as does the frequency of updates--world and continent maps are generally updated annually, while regional and national maps may be updated much less frequently. CIA map products are not replaced or superseded--all editions are retained--so they are useful for historical comparison.
You will find these maps in binders as well as in map cases in the map collection.
