1:2000 Scale City of Calgary Topographic Maps 1960s to 1980s

                         (Copyright: City of Calgary)



The grid cell labels in the map are identifiers for the corresponding map files. Example: The filename corresponding to the 1978 map for section 22, township 25, range 2, west of the 5th meridian is yyc_nw_22_1978.jpg. Some sections have multiple maps from different years and a few maps do not have dates (yyc_e_2_nd.jpg). Not all grid cells have a corresponding map from this period.

The City of Calgary's ATS Township Sections map can be used to determine the required section(s) and their matching grid cell label(s). Zoom into your area of interest and click on the cell(s) covering that area to see their attributes. Inverting the planning no. gives the grid cell label (22NW → NW22) needed to identify the correct file.
