Map Catalog

Note to researchers: As of Spring 2021, CPNWS staff are working towards the migration of content from this local map catalog to WWU's new digital assets management platform, MABEL. MABEL already hosts catalog information for the Charts and Engravings of George Vancouver's Expeditions (formerly the Bullitt Collection on 18th century Explorers, listed below), plus a range of additional description and digital content relating to campus, local and regional history. Don't hesitate to contact us ( or 360-650-7534) with any questions.  

This CPNWS Map Catalog provides item-level description of select maps documenting the Pacific Northwest Region and beyond. Please note that not all maps at CPNWS are described and managed here at item-level - please contact us with questions and for more information about other cartographic holdings. Aerial photographs housed at CPNWS are described in this separate guide:
