BYU Map Collections

This is a collection of maps, atlases, and gazetteers selected by university personnel and library patrons. The images cover multiple centuries, and initially originated from the Brigham Young University, Harold B. Lee Library, Special Collections, and Map Collection. Additional materials may be included from other collections and university departments, as time progresses.

Wherever possible, maps have been georeferenced using ESRI ArcMap software, and include a World File for use in a GIS. The maps themselves have not been altered from the original. To access the World Files (e.g. .tfwx), click on "All Files: HTTP" in the “View the book” box. If the map is segmented, or includes large insets, multiple World Files may exist for each image. Atlases will have World Files for each map page.

"Names in this gazetteer appear on AMS 1:25,000 (AMS M841 series and AMS M842 series) maps of West Germany ... The M842 series (Bavaria 1:25,000) will eventually be converted to M841 sheet lines. Therefore, names appearing on present M842 sheets have been listed with reference to the anticipated M841 sheet layout and marked with an asterisk. A separate gazetteer exists for interim use with the M842 series. [Gazetteer to AMS 1:25,000 maps of Bavaria (Germany) 1954]"
