Survey of India - One-inch and Half-inch to the mile maps, 1916 - 1945

Survey of India - One-inch and Half-inch to the mile maps, 1916 - 1945 graphic

This small set of 140 maps covering part of southern India, have been scanned and georeferenced to support a collaborative academic project, Digital Innovation in Water Scarcity in Coimbatore, India, led by the University of Lancaster. The maps are the standard topographic series maps produced by the Survey of India at the scales of one-inch to the mile (1:63,360) and half-inch to the mile (1:126,720). We are very grateful to the Arts and Humanities Research Council for funding this work.

Some background information on these and other maps is available in Notes on Survey of India maps : and the modern development of Indian cartography, (PDF; 6.2 Mb) by Lt. Col. W.M. Coldstream, Superintendent, Map Publication, Survey of India, 1919.

The maps below are listed in sheet order by the two scale groups:
