New Map of Edwards County Available

LAWRENCE--A new topographic map of Edwards County is now available from the Kansas Geological Survey, based at the University of Kansas.

The map shows elevations and contours of the land surface in Edwards County, along with a variety of natural and man-made features such as roads, power lines, towns and air fields.

The Edwards County map shows drainage patterns along the Arkansas River and Rattlesnake Creek, along with pipelines, old railroad grades, former Indian reservation boundaries, and other features.

The map is drawn at a scale of 1:100,000 so that one inch on the map equals about 1.6 miles of actual distance. Elevations on the map are shown in metric units.

Individual copies of the map are available for $4, plus $2 per order for shipping and handling, from the Kansas Geological Survey, West Campus, University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS 66047. Kansas residents should add 6.9 percent sales tax to their total order--maps plus shipping and handling.

The Survey also carries other, more detailed topographic maps of the state. A map index is available upon request.
