TitleMap collection
DescriptionThe London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine's map collection consists of maps mostly concerning malaria and sleeping sickness in Africa as well as many other maps that relate to subjects such as population distribution, vegetation and geological features. Maps originate from all across the world, including Great Britain, Europe, Australia and much of Africa. The collection also includes map books.
AdminHistoryThe maps within the collection were used by School staff in the planning of expeditions overseas, in spatial investigation of tropical diseases, recording research results and in prevention programmes. Over the years they grew in number and were seen as a valuable resource as examples of planning and fieldwork techniques.
