US Topo topographic maps are produced by the National Geospatial Program of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

The project was launched in lateand the term “US Topo” refers specifically to quadrangle topographic maps. The USGS was entrusted with the responsibility for mapping the country in and has been the primary civilian mapping agency of the United States ever since.

The best known USGS maps are the ,scale topographic maps, also known as minute quadrangles. From approximately tomore t minute maps were made to cover the 48 conterminous states.

They were essential for integrating and analyzing place-based information, and were widely used by receationalists. After year legacy of topographic mapping (), the USGS embarked on an innovative future of integrating historical maps with computer-generated maps from a national geographical information system (GIS) database.

Topographical Maps These are general-use maps at medium scales that present elevation (contour lines), hydrography, geographic place names, and a variety of cultural features. Current-generation topographic maps are created from digital GIS databases, and are branded "US Topo.".

Currently U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) topographical maps are published with imperial units. For example the contour lines will be in feet versus meters. However, you can reference the map legend and locate the distance key which will have a conversion in km. Use a compass or small ruler to map.

Browse by using our interactive state maps linked above or search for any trail map, lake, river, mountain, city, or any other geographic place in the USA. You can also enter coordinates to get a topo map of any location. TopoZone has over 1 million topo maps for you to use for free.
