Thematic maps

The focus of the GIS map and atlas collection is primarily on Montreal, the province of Quebec, Canada and the United States. In addition, we have an international map and atlas collection that contains national atlases, topographic maps and general maps for many countries.

We have an extensive collection for other parts of Canada, but not to the same level of detail as available for Montreal. Topics covered include: topographic maps, geological maps, soil survey maps, thematic atlases, and general city and road maps. Please note that our large scale maps (1:1000 - 1:20 000) for areas outside of the Montreal region are scarce and out of date.

Only 10% of our maps are catalogued, to determine the call number of your region of interest please use the following table or ask staff at the McGill Library for help.
