Map Libraries on the World Wide Web
From the John R. Borchert Map Library, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, University Libraries.
This Center maintains one of the most comprehensive web sites related to maps in general. The compilation of internet sites is intended to be an introductory guide to some of the map and reference resources available via the World Wide Web. They are categorized by geographical region although there are a couple of thematic categories such as Interactive Maps. The emphasis is on displayable maps (i.e., images) rather than digital cartographic (GIS) and satellite data.
