Image Collections for CCNY Users: Cartography

This guide points to images and image collections, some available to CCNY users only, that may be useful for your research.


ARTstor - Artstor's images include historic maps. Limit to "Geography" in the browse classification and then type in "map."

David Rumsey Maps - Part of the Insight Collection, spectacular, large-scale images of historic maps

Historic Map Page - Duke Cartography librarian Mark Thomas' page of world-wide sites of historical cartography.

World-Wide Web Virtual Maps - one of the oldest (and perhaps the most amateurishly laid out!) collections of virtual maps.  Still an excellent source
