NL Maps

The Centre for Newfoundland Studies holds a growing collection of 350 maps and charts from the pre-1900 period. These are of value to maritime historians, historians of colonization and development, political scientists, toponymists, geographers and cartographers. The maps are particularly interesting for showing the shape of the island of Newfoundland, which changed as scientific knowledge about the coastline grew. With the magnification feature, digitized maps can be superior to their paper originals.
