MapTech, a creator and seller of mapping software and maps, has a collection of historic USGS topographic sheets, mostly dating from the first half of the 2oth century. Chris Marshall toured around to a number of libraries armed with a scanner and laptop and proceeded to put this digital collection together of topographic maps from the northeastern United States. These maps are beauties and come in approximately 2 MB jpeg files. Users can access the collection via quad or town index and by clicking on a state map. In some locations, maps from more than one date are available.

    Neato. It would be neat to see if any major land moving constructions have altered any topo maps in any way.
