Historical Maps

Generally, we refer to historical maps as any scanned map image that is at least a few years old. This includes Tax Maps, County Road Maps, and even Surveys.

With a GIS, "Historical or "Archived" maps could be something that was printed 5 minutes ago; things are always changing, and data is always being updated, edited, or changed in one way or another. The maps we are showcasing here on this page range from a few years old to more than 100.

Our historical maps are under a couple of different topics; please click on any of the buttons below to take a look.

The "Board" Maps!

There are a number of maps in our map department office that were at some point in the past glued to masonite boards. They are prints of aerial photography, sometime between 1950's and late 1960's, with many of them showing property lines drawn on them with property owners names. We have worked with a company in Columbus Ohio to get these boards scanned and will be making them available on our GIS web page.

Maps So Far:

These have been scanned, cropped, and converted into PDF files that are very small, but yet retain excellent resolution. Our goal is to convert the TIFF files into MrSID images that have been ortho-rectified, so that they have real-world coordinates and users will have the ability to view them just as any of map layer of data is viewed.

This is the TEMPORARY home for these images; they will eventually be moved to there proper locations on the web site, i.e. "Lumberton" will be moved to he "Lumberton" Tax Map page, and since they all show Aerial Photography they will all be linked from the Aerial Photography page.
