For many, the basis or foundation of nearly every map is topography, the physical land surface over which we pass over everyday of our lives. All 116 USGS 7.5 minute topographic maps of Connecticut are available in print for purchase at the DEEP Store.
In addition, many of the earlier edition topographic maps, from the 1890s through the 1950s, may be viewed on-line at the University of Connecticut Map and Geographic Information Center (MAGIC). These are mosaic composites which allow you to move over, or pan, across the surface of the state without interruption. The same era topographic maps are also presented individually and with more detail for your review on-line through the University of New Hampshire website.
Additionally, two types of digital topography software covering the state is available for your home PC through the DEEP Store.
