Maps show general locales like towns, trails, parks, and islands, as well as locations of businesses, events, and structures. Many maps in the Archive have been annotated with circles or arrows (like the map shown at right) to pinpoint a specific location. These annotated maps are derived from base maps which are also in the Archive.

The Archive contains dozens of maps of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. Many of the images are high resolution and zoomable.
