Florida Map Collection

Overview

Florida Map Collection The Florida Center for Library Automation Show All Maps Florida The Florida Map Collection is an ongoing cooperative project of the State of Florida's public universities to digitize and provide online access to maps of contemporary and historic Florida, dating from 1564 through the present. The majority of maps in this collection document historic Florida (1564-1926), illustrating territories of the Spanish, French, English, and United States in Florida, as well as, coastal Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Georgia and other southeastern states. While many of these maps were originally published as maps independent of any other publication, some were published with atlases, books, government documents, railroad schedules, land promotions, etc.

Maps in this collection include municipal and county maps as well as maps depicting the entire state. Among the municipal maps in the Collection and the historic and highly detailed Sanborn Fire Insurance Company's pre-1923 maps of Florida; effort is ongoing to complete this set. Maps in the Florida Map Collection are also included within the North American Map Collection and the Caribbean Basin Map Collection.

Maps are taken from archives, special collections, and libraries of the state's public universities. These maps represent only a small part of the wealth of historical and archival treasures held by the universities' archives and libraries. Users should note the source of materials they use on this site and should contact the holding libraries or archives directly for more information.
