VIETNAM WAR ERA MAPS

by Dwight Z.

THE VIETNAM CENTER AND ARCHIVE at Texas Tech University is an excellent source for Vietnam Veterans looking for Army Map Service maps used during that time.  1:50,000 scale maps are available online in PDF and JPG formats.  In my opinion, the JPG format seems to have better contrast.  The maps on this page are categorized by province.  Click on your choice of province and you will link to the 1:50,000 series of maps associated with that province.

You can download the map file to a flash drive for future reference – and your local Office Max will print a 24″ x 36″ color copy for about $35 (this was a Internet rice – I can’t guarantee this price).  Check for cheaper prices locally!

There is also a Map Collection Search and Resource page:  http://www.virtualarchive.vietnam.ttu.edu/starweb/virtual/maps/servlet.starweb?path=virtual/maps/maps_new.web#
