Maps: Asia

Catalog of maps in the Blume Library and links to find more maps on the Web.

How to use the Catalog

The maps listed on this page are divided into three categories, each with its own box. There are also separate boxes for the Middle East region (on the right) and for cities in China (at the bottom of this column).

  • Maps covering the whole continent
  • Maps covering a region
  • Maps coverning individual countries


The numbers given after the title, authoring agency and date for each map give its location in the Map File Case.  The first two numbers of the three-part number for each map refer to groups of folders within the Map File Case.  The final number is a unique sequential number for the particular map.

Remember that the maps listed here are only the large maps (substantially larger than standard letter-size) that are filed in the Map File Case.  For information on other map locations in the Blume Library, see our main Maps Page.
