The USGS Map Locator is the place to go for topographic maps of the United States. Even though the website title is "The USGS Store" there are free downloads that can be printed by the Alkek One Print Shop for Texas State University students, faculty, and staff.
You can search the Map Locator by address, location, or topographical map name. Clicking on the resulting "pink pushpin" reveals the various scales available for a given location, along with (some) map previews and download options.
Go to Google Images and click on Advanced Image Search
Fill in “Find Results” to match your needs. For example:
· Change the size to “Larger than 1024 x 768” (or more) if you are trying to find a larger map
Optional: for government maps, change the Domain to “.gov” or “tx.us”
When you find the map you need, go to the Government Information Map Request Form
Copy/paste the URL for the map into “Additional Information”
Fill in your contact information, then select Map name "Other" and Map scale "Other" (both are required fields)
To send the request, click the "Submit" button at the bottom of the screen
Current Texas State University students, faculty, or staff may request map printing for a small fee. The printing service is provided by the Alkek One Print Shop.
Requests should be submitted via the Map Request form. We ask that requests be limited to 10 maps/request. Typical map requests are available within 24 hours of request submission.
