Searchable map database now available to researchers

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

More than 33,000 historical maps of Utah and the western United States can now be searched online at According to Utah Division of State History director Philip F. Notarianni, "Our online map database will be an important tool for researchers in many fields, because old maps show historical trails, roads, railroads, land planning, buildings, boundaries, and much more. This database quickly and easily shows what maps we have available in our collections." Researchers can search for maps by location, date, type, title, or cartographer.

The maps can be viewed at the Utah History Research Center at the Rio Grande Depot (300 S. Rio Grande St., SLC). Some of the map types available include topographical, plat, highway, water usage, forest, mining, grazing, trail, railroad, and local maps. One popular map, the 1849 plat map of Salt Lake City, shows what properties the earliest pioneers in the valley owned.

For more information on State History's map collection, contact Doug Misner at (801) 533-3535. For information on donating maps to the collection, contact Susan Whetstone at (801) 533-3543.
