Historically, the map collection goes back to the foundation of the Faculty of Geography at the University of Vienna in the year 1851. In 1890 the Institute Library already had approximately 5,000 sheet maps, 80 wall maps and 115 Atlases. Today, the collection comprises of maps of every part of the world, but with a clear focus on Europe, and in particular Austria and the states of the former Danube Monarchy). Along with historically valuable old maps, the map collection also has all types of current maps (survey maps, thematic maps, city maps, hiking maps… etc). In the next few years, the historically significant old maps and copyright-free maps of the 20th century will be digitised.
