Is there a way to get detailed public works maps online for free? Answered


I am located in California, and need detailed survey maps of towns in my area, to scout out urban exploration spots. Is there a free website that supplies detailed and current maps of US towns? or should i just go and try to get maps at the county records?

County/municipality etc will have the best Geographic Information System data and can often provide it for the cost of printing, especially if you're nice to them.

Google maps/earth is pretty awesome also.

If all you need is height information then you can request it from nasa here. The process is a bit confusing and will take a few days for you to receive your answer but they offer free height information from like 99% of the earth's surface.

unfortunately, this is not what i need. im looking for detailed CAD-drawn maps of towns and cities, often called "plat" maps. these are surprisingly hard to get. thanks though, that is a useful bit of info.

In my area, some of this is downloadable from the town-hall and county websites.
