Cartographic Resources, Maps, and Spatial Data


Printed Topographic Maps

The Maps collection in the Lower Level of the Morris Library includes 7.5-minute topographic maps of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.  Please ask at the Student Multimedia Design Center desk for assistance.  The earlier 15-minute topographic maps of these states are now housed in Special Collections.

In addition to servicing published maps, color topographic maps can be printed from PDF files, available for download from the USGS and Delaware DataMIL.  The Center has an HP DesignJet 1055cm Plus printer that prints on a 36" wide roll of glossy or matte paper. The cost is $5 per linear foot.

Online Topographic Maps

Delaware has unique topographic map products, linked from the State Map & Data tab.

Large Format Printing

Anyone wishing to take an online map into the field should consider printing a copy.  Commercial providers, such as FexEx Office, offer large format printing services in person and online.  University of Delaware users may consider two on campus locations for printing large format materials.
