Our collection consists of Canadian topographic maps (digital and print), general and historical atlases, aerial photographs (digital and print), wall maps and gazetteers.

To find maps and atlases use the Omni search engine. To find air photos, wall maps and geological maps use our Cartographic Resources Research Guide.

We provide support for special equipment for use with cartographic resources, and may provide limited support for select geographical and statistical software packages based on team member capacity and availability.
