The Ball State University Libraries’ GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) in Bracken Library includes a large collection of maps from Canada.  The collection includes hundreds of road and tourist maps of the cities, provinces, and territories of Canada.  The GRMC also houses a large collection of topographic maps of Canada ranging in scale from 1:25,000 to 1:500,000.

The Atlas Collection on the second floor of Bracken Library also includes many resources about Canada.  In addition to road, street and railway atlases of the cities and provinces, the collection includes The Canadian Military Atlas published in 2004, Historical Atlas of Canada, and Canada Back Road Atlas published in 2008. 

The Canadian Atlas: Our Nation, Environment, and People was published in 2004 and provides comprehensive coverage of the human and physical geography of Canada, including its newest territory, Nunavut.  This atlas includes many aerial and satellite images, charts, timelines, and statistical information about the population.  Maps of more than 30 Canadian cities are included in the atlas.
