US Army Map Service Topographic Maps for Sale

The US Army Map Service (AMS) Series U502 India and Pakistan was published between the late 1950s and early 1960s, and was last revised in 1962. The US AMS was superceded by the Defense Mapping Agency. This series was declassified in the 1970s, and preceded the Joint Operational Ground (JOG) series.

The U502 series remains, however, highly accurate for topographic details. Each map has a "reliability diagram" that shows its degree of accuracy. This series is the only map series to cover the entire Indian Subcontinent. The maps show most villages, but not recently-built roads.

These "like-new" original four-color maps have 500-foot contour intervals. Each map covers one degree of latitude and 1½ degrees of longitude. The graphic detail of each map measures 18 inches high by 24 inches wide (excluding the map border, legend, reliability diagram, etc.), with the entire map sheet measuring approximately 24 inches high by 30 inches wide.
