African Map Collection
The African Map Collection includes all of the nations of Africa, as well as, some Atlantic and Indian Ocean nations in proximity to Africa. The countries of Asia Minor, i.e., the Middle East, also are included, albeit because of overlapping regional interests. Additionally, Some maps in the African Map Collection also may depict parts of southern or Mediterean Europe.
Show All Maps African The African Map Collection is an ongoing cooperative project of archives, libaries and museums in Florida and throughout the Caribbean to digitize and provide online access to maps of contemporary and historic Africa, dating from 1600 through the present. The majority of maps in this collection document a colonial past (1600-1926). While many of these maps were originally published as maps independent of any other publication, some were published with atlases, books, government documents, shipping and railroad schedules, land promotions, etc. Maps in this collection include island, municipal, county and parish maps as well as maps depicting the region more broadly.
These maps represent only a small part of the wealth of historical and archival treasures held by the contributing archives, libraries, and museums. Users should note the source of the maps they use and should contact the holding libraries or archives directly for more information.
The Collection is uneven in representation of specific areas as contributions to the Collection reflect the interests of the contributing institutions. Maps in the African Map Collection include the maps of the Middle Eastern Map Collection. Effort is on-going to broaden representation of other specific locations.
