Description
These maps are part of the South Asia Maps Collection, a digitized collection available at Western Michigan University. They are known as Army Map Service series U511. While series U511 was published by the Army Map Service, the sheets are reprints of earlier maps published by Great Britain’s Geographic Section, General Staff (their series 3919). The maps are based on surveys from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
