National Geographic Maps

National Geographic maps are excellent reference tools. In addition to depicting basic political and geographic features, National Geographic products often display significant cultural, scientific and historical themes.

UMCP's holdings include more than 375 maps dating from 1914 to the present, which means the collection is a useful means of conducting both contemporary and historical research. Scales and geographic coverages vary--NGS maps depict cities, states, countries, regions, and continents, as well as earth and other celestial bodies.

National Geographic maps are stored in map cases as a series, and shelved according to geographic region.
