Sanborn Maps in the Map Collection

Digital Sanborn Maps Database

The Map Collection holds copies of all of the Arizona cities mapped by the Sanborn Company as listed in the Library of Congress' checklist of Sanborn maps, Fire Insurance Maps in the Library of Congress, and a number of later revised maps. The Arizona maps, depending on the town, date from 1867 to 1970. Use the Index of Arizona Sanborn Maps and Dates below to identify the maps by city and date. The maps are available in several formats including bound volumes, microfilm and via an electronic database - Digital Sanborn Maps. Off campus access to the Digital Sanborn Maps database is restricted to ASU users.

 

The Map Collection also has microfilm of some Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah Sanborn maps. Specific cities are listed in the catalog records for each: Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah.

 

About Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps

In 1867, the Sanborn Map Company of Pelham, New York, began creating maps to assist fire insurance agents in assessing the fire hazards of particular pieces of property in towns and cities throughout the United States. The maps indicate the size, shape, and construction materials of residences, commercial properties and factories and often include such details as building use, house and block numbers, widths of streets and locations of water mains. In addition to their detail, the Sanborn maps were regularly updated, in some cases up until the 1970s, making them a valuable tool for documenting the changes in structure and building use in American cities.
