The old maps website (doc.unh.edu)

Anyone know what happened to the old Topo maps website at doc.unh.edu?
The page now says “Forbidden, You don’t have permission to access this resource”.

I get a different message if I look under "doc.unh.edu" vs "docs.unh.edu". The first I get a message to contact the librarian, the second I get a forbidden message.

I looked on the unh site and I can't find the maps, but there is a message about contacting the librarian for access.

It seems perhaps it's no longer a public resource.

Good find.

That's the link to their website that directs you to the archive.

You can also get them from USGS, although through a slightly more complicated process.

ESRI has old topo maps for the entire US accessible via an interactive map. They also have a much greater selection of years than the UNH site had. You can also pull up multiple years at once and adjust the transparency so that you can overlay and compare them.

Use this code as a custom mapsource in MOBAC, and you can get all USGS topo maps, and save them to any format for your device.

You can view what the map looks like here (zoom below level 8 to get topo).

I've been packaging the data up into mbtiles files by entire state. The file was around 12GB for all of NY state.

Code:
<customMapSource>
<name>ArcGIS_USGS_TOPO</name>
<minZoom>8</minZoom>
<maxZoom>15</maxZoom>
<tileType>jpg</tileType>
<tileUpdate>None</tileUpdate>
<url>https://services.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services/USA_Topo_Maps/MapServer/tile/{$z}/{$y}/{$x}</url>
<backgroundColor>#000000</backgroundColor>
</customMapSource>
