maps

During this time of infinite boredom, I was trying to do a little mapping for the warmer months. So I tried to go back to an old favorite looking at the old topos that have been online for so long now. Does anyone know how to find the Historical maps of New York and New England anymore from a UNH website if I remember correctly ? Do they have a different website now or a different way to find them now ? They were really interesting and a very useful tool and I hope they still exist somewhere online. If anyone has a bit of info that would be great ! Tx everyone

Joe

Esri has an interactive map with just about all of the historic USGS topo quads for the entire country. It's a far better resource than the UNH page. You can even pull up multiple quads from different years and adjust the transparencies on one so that you can overlay two maps on top of each other and compare.

The USGS redid their map page. All of the historic maps are available. I liked their old way better, but the new one is functional.
