What is a map series?

Throughout history, governmental agencies and other organizations have published maps depicting specific areas with the state or the nation, all at the same or similar scale, making it easy to compare the area. These "series" or "sets" provide incredible cartographic coverage of our state, its counties, cities, or regions. For example, the most famous map series is perhaps the U.S. Geological Survey 7.5 topographic map series, providing comprehensive coverage of the nation at the 1:24,000 scale (and earlier at 1:62,500). As finding tools for the various series, we are providing lists or guides to the following series:
