Map Digital Archives

Digital Archives of Maps covering the Hopewell Valley region, including Historic maps of the region, Municipal maps (e.g., Tax and Zoning) , and other formats (e.g., Topographic and Aerial). See Acknowledgements for contributors.

The Historic maps are typically pre-2020, and therefore are out of copyright in the U.S. They typically have been digitized and shared by the Library of Congress and various universities. The Municipal maps are public property, created by various levels of government, and either shared by the government or manually photographed at government archives.  The Aerial maps can be from government projects or archives, or are available commercially.

Many of the maps have further manually processed, to reduce the resolution for faster online viewing, to clean up manual photographs, to extract specific areas from a larger high-res map, and/or to package set of maps together. The resulting files typically should download in a second or two (images), or in a handful of seconds (PDFs). Click the Source link in the table for more information, and to access the highest-res imagery.

See the About page for more details on how this collection is assembled and processed.
