The Florida Map Collection is an ongoing cooperative project of the State of Florida's public universities to digitize and provide online access to maps of contemporary and historic Florida, dating from 1564 through the present. The majority of maps in this collection document historic Florida (1564-1926), illustrating territories of the Spanish, French, English, and United States in Florida, as well as, coastal Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Georgia and other southeastern states. While many of these maps were originally published as maps independent of any other publication, some were published with atlases, books, government documents, railroad schedules, land promotions, etc.
Interactive Map Images in this collection include municipal and county maps as well as maps depicting the entire state.
