There are several types of maps that can be helpful in analyzing different aspects of agricultural use of the land.

  • Print soil surveys of the U.S. by county are available. Colorado soil surveys are available in the Earth Sciences & Map Library.

  • Topographic maps show how land is and has been used as it relates to agriculture.

  • Aerial photographs can be used to analyze how land has been used historically and currently.

  • When searching for agricultural maps, some key words that could be used include: "crop*", "farm*", or "agricultur*" AND the geographic region of interest. On the search results page, you can limit to maps on the left-hand side.

If you need any additional help finding agricultural maps, please contact the Map Library.
