Historical Topographic Maps: 1:63,360 Index

Coordinate system: 4269 - "NAD83"


This topographic map index is a finding aid for Ontario sheets of the 1:63,360 series of Historical Topographic Maps of Canada. This series was produced between 1906 and 1953, and includes nearly 500 individual topographic map sheets for the Province of Ontario. Maps cover mostly populated and border regions, and show both natural and man-made features such as relief, spot heights, administrative boundaries, roads, railways, trails, waterways, bridges, buildings, mills, power lines, terrain, and land formations.

Once this index is added to the map, clicking on the index tiles will indicate the topographic map coverage. This allows early topographic maps to be found based on regions of interest. When a tile is selected, this search box will populate with all relevant maps that include coverage of the selected area, in chronological order. Maps can then be viewed on the map sheet, downloaded, or explained in greater detail.
