State Library of Western Australia Digitised Maps 1840-1985
This dataset contains bibliographic records and persistent URLs for the digitised maps held within the State Library of Western Australia’s map collection, including cadastral and town-site maps across the state of Western Australia. The maps range from the early 1840s to the mid-1980s and include land use, zoning, lot numbers, boundary measurements, terms of sale, and locality plans; as well as distances from utilities, landmarks and businesses.
Highlights include the Lindsay J. Peet Collection of Cadastral Maps; town-site maps from the WA Department of Lands and Surveys; the Australia Soviet Military City Plans, Perth; and the Polus Antarticus states, which show the South Pole and Australia prior to the discoveries of Tasman in 1642 and 1643-44. This set also includes the Historic map series 1880-1890 which has been captured as its own dataset.
