Middle of a project, wondering if there is a better historic topo source than TheNationalMap for finding historical maps for an area. Coring some lakes, would be nice to know that they've been there for at least a few hundred years.

  • If it is open data that you are seeking then researching/asking at the Open Data Stack Exchange may be advised. Where have you looked besides The National Map? – PolyGeo Jul 6 '17 at 21:49

The OldMapsoline is the best source I know for an old map. This map are mostly from the eighteenth century. In the home page you can insert a location into the search box One other option is move around the map and see what pop out enter image description here In the left bar you have a list of maps and their descriptions. When you click on a map you it will open a new window that allowed you to download the map.
