Topographic maps of Europe

McGill Library has a collection of international topographic maps of many countries throughout the world. Some of our maps are produced by the country's government maps service, whereas the other topographic maps are produced by the Army Map Service. The international topographic maps are located in the grey map cabinets and are organized by Continent then alphabetically by country name.

There are some map records in the Catalogue but the majority are not found in the Catalogue. The best way to find a topographic map in our collection is to ask staff at McGill Library for assistance. We will show you how to search for the maps you want, and how to retrieve the maps.
