Show All Maps South American The South American 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 South America, dating from 1564 through the present. The majority of maps in this collection document a colonial past (1564-1926). 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 nations, 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 South American Map Collection include the maps of the Caribbean Basin Map Collection.
