DEFENSE MAPPING AGENCY
There are two major sets of Defense Mapping Agency (DMA) maps:
United States topographic maps (1:50,000)
World/regional maps (scale varies)
UNITED STATES (1:50,000)
The 1:50,000 series of domestic topographic maps is prepared and distributed for the DMA by the United States Geological Survey. They are filed alphabetically by state and then map name Map Case 13, drawers 3.
Index: The index for the 1:50,000 series is currently out of print. However, recent maps in this series are indexed in:
Monthly Catalog of U.S. Government Publications (REFERENCE: Z1223 .A18, ONLINE FROM 1994-PRESENT)
This set consists of hundreds of maps of various kinds (e.g. general, planimetric, topographic, road maps) at various scales. Although essentially inactive (dating back to the time of the Army Map Service) this set often contains the only maps in the collection covering certain areas of the world.
DMA maps are arranged in lettered and numbered series in Map Cases 13 and 14. Individual sheets are filed alphabetically within each series.
This catalog is the most complete record of holdings in the collection. There are also instructions on how to locate the series/sheets for areas of the world. Of particular interest is series 1301, a large collection of maps covering most areas of the world.
Defense Mapping Agency: Public Sale Topographic Maps and Publications (READY REFERENCE).
As implied by the title, this catalog applies only to DMA maps currently available, a very small portion of the total collection, most of which are out of print.
