This page provides information about topographic maps for the state of North Carolina that are available through the N.C. Geological Survey.

Topographic Map of North Carolina

The popular USGS topographic quadrangle maps (often called 'topos' or 'quads') are available for the entire state. These maps are at a scale of 1:24,000, or 1-inch on the map equals about 2,000-feet on the ground. Also, each map covers 7.5-minutes of Latitude and Longitude. There are 953 topos in the state; we carry a complete inventory of all paper maps for the state.
