The National Collection's Maps
The collection contains maps, map series and atlases from the late 1500s to the present day. The number of separate map sheets is approximately 70,000.
The earliest map sheets are general maps published abroad in which Finland appears as well as Finnish maps from the 1600s. The first maps printed in Finland date from the early 1800s. Almost all maps published domestically in the 1900s have been obtained for the collection.
The collection's maps and atlases from 1967 onwards have been catalogued in the Fennica database. Ordering the older materials requires the use of the National Collection's card indexes and index maps.
