Historical Topographic Manuscript Maps by C. C. Vermeule Around 1870-1887



These Adobe™ PDF files of Historical topographic manuscript maps were completed by Topographic Engineer C.C. Vermeule from around 1870 to 1887 at a scale of 1 to 21,120 (3 inches equal one mile). The maps constitute New Jersey's first topographic survey, and show early topographic interpretations and cultural features of the state. For conservation purposes, Vermeule's maps were encapsulated in archival mylar. After encapsulation, each map was scanned in TIFF format at 300 dpi as RGB datatype and converted to JPEG format. The JPEG image was then converted to an Adobe™ PDF document. There are 101 topographic maps in the series and one key map. Maps numbered 50 and 53 are missing from the archive and were scanned from blue line field copies. Due to equipment limitations, some maps were scanned in two sections and are identified with the letter "n", "s", "e" or "w".  To view a map, click on a numbered section on the map below.
