U.S. National Grid Maps for Minnesota
Reference maps covering Minnesota, based on the U.S. National Grid system, show the location of schools, hospitals, fire and police stations, roads and political boundaries over an air photo background.
The USNG is a standard location reference system that does not depend on landmarks or street signs. It is an efficient way to provide location information at different levels of detail and across administrative and political boundaries. The USNG is particularly useful in emergency situations.
The maps previously published on this webpage have been superseded to update their content and fix issues at the UTM zone boundaries.
Updated maps have been created by the Minnesota Geospatial Advisory Council's Emergency Preparedness Committee.
