About the Map Collection

The Map Collection, a unit of Government Documents and Maps Department, is currently being rebuilt after the devastating flash flood of October 2004. The Collection strives to maintain comprehensive coverage of the world with particular emphasis on Hawai`i, Asia and the Pacific. It includes general reference maps, topographic maps in various scales and series, travel and road maps, aeronautical and nautical charts, a variety of subject maps, and aerial photography.

Maps are acquired through the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) including the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) topographical and geological map series, all maps and charts distributed by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), reference maps from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Park Service (NPS), the USDA's Forest Service, and other U.S. government agencies. We also select and purchase additional maps of Hawaii, U.S. mainland, and other foreign countries.

The Map Collection has been designated an Earth Science Information Center affiliate of the U.S. Geological Survey. This service provides users with information on the range of available cartographic data produced by the USGS and how to acquire them.
