A to Z Maps Online is a wonderful educational resource for students, teachers, historians, hikers, travelers and anyone interested in geography! The site brings together modern and historical maps from a variety of sources which can be downloaded in high or low resolution and printed for your personal use. Some example maps:
- Topographic maps for every quadrangle in the United States
- Antique maps for towns and cities including 1877 and 1899 maps of Plattsburgh, an 1886 map of Malone
- Tree and bird species range maps
- Modern maps of the world, either with place names or without for teaching purposes
- Maps of the Holy Land
We were amazed at the quality of a high-resolution download from the site. If you ever wanted an antique map to frame and put on the wall, you can find one for free here!
