New Jersey State Atlas Sheets 1-17, 1890



New Jersey State Atlas Sheets were completed by Topographic Engineer C.C. Vermeule from c. 1878 to 1887 at a scale of 1 to 21,120 (3 inches = 1 mile). These historical Atlas Sheets, in Adobe™ PDF format, are the originals of Vemuele's work and comprise the first sets of seventeen Atlas Sheets including overlapping (Nos. 1-17 from 1880-1890) at a scale of 1 to 63,360 (1 inch = 1 mile).   For conservation purposes, Atlas Sheets were encapsulated in archival mylar. After encapsulation, each map was scanned in TIFF format at 300 dpi as RGB datatype and converted to JPEG format. The JPEG image was then converted to an Adobe™ PDF document to include all of the image features within and outside the New Jersey State boundaries.  The PDF images can be viewed by clicking on the list below for Atlas Sheets 1-17.
