Description:

Map libraries are a common feature of many large public universities across the country, and the Map and Geographic Information Center at the University of Connecticut is part of this tradition. Bringing together a combination of current US Geological Survey maps and historical maps of importance, their site is a good place for geographers and other such persons seeking detailed spatial information about this state. By going in to the MAGIC Database from the site’s homepage, visitors can view maps of Connecticut’s coasts, rivers, labor market area, and regional planning districts. On the historic side of things, there are a number of fine maps that document the state’s past, including the 1811 Warren & Gillett map of the entire state and a number of maps that document certain counties such as Fairfield and Hartford Counties in 1856 and 1855, respectively.
