Topographic maps of the Philippines

Recommended Posts

Mik

Here's some nice topographic maps of the Philippines made by the US Army Corps of Engineers. They date from 1954-1955 but the terrain hasn't changed much, except on the Cebu City map you can see the what the Reclamation Area looked like when it was still water. The maps are large: 5000 x 3800. Attached is a small snapshot of Cebu City.

Its fascinating that the map shows a railroad and a "Number 1" highway in the 50s . . . . and I can only guess what 'foul ground' might be (near Olango Island)
