Minnesota Scanned Topographic Map Service

The Minnesota Geospatial Image Service provides versatile access to the USGS Topographic Map Series layers (DRG format) using a Web Map Service (WMS). Using this service eliminates the need to download and store these background layers locally. Three scales of USGS topographic maps are available through this service: 1:250,000, 1:100,000, and 1:24,000. The maps are 1949-1994 vintage.<br/> <br/> For more information:<br/> - How to use a WMS: https://www.mngeo.state.mn.us/chouse/wms/how_to_use_wms.html<br/> - Technical specifications for using this service: https://www.mngeo.state.mn.us/chouse/wms/wms_image_server_specs.html<br/> - About topo maps: https://www.mngeo.state.mn.us/chouse/elevation/topo_maps.html<br/> - USGS services providing access to current topo maps: https://apps.nationalmap.gov/services/<br/><br/>
