Topographic and planimetric (without contours) maps are produced by the U.S. Geological Survey for the entire country. The maps range from the highly detailed 1:24,000-scale series to two generalized 1:500,000-scale wall maps of the whole state. The following Kansas maps are available from the Kansas Geological Survey. A free index also is available. Call the KGS Publications Sales office, 785-864-2157, for more information.


1:24,000-scale (7.5 minute) series View Sample
The 1:24,000-scale maps are the most detailed topographic maps available for Kansas. Each map covers an area of 7-1/2 x 7-1/2 minutes (approximately 6-1/2 x 8-1/2 miles). Towns, lakes, rivers, creeks, ponds, roads, railroads, quarries, pipelines, radio towers, airports and landing strips, townships, vegetation, cemeteries, and rural buildings are shown. Available for the entire state. Most of the maps have 10-foot contour intervals. $8.00

Less detailed maps show towns, lakes, rivers, roads, railroads, and other features. They are available in the following series:

1:50,000-scale series
Each map covers a 15 x 15-minute area. Partial coverage of the state is available. 10-foot contour intervals. $6.00
1:100,000-scale topographic series View Sample
Each map covers a 30 x 60-minute area. Partial coverage of the state is available. 10-meter contour intervals. $9.00
1:100,000-scale planimetric series View Sample
Each map covers a 30 x 60-minute area. Partial coverage of the state is available. 10-meter contour intervals. $9.00
County 1:100,000-scale topographic series View Sample
