County Atlas Map Images and Documentation

The Haliburton County Street Atlas has been prepared using the latest data available for the GIS, including current 9-1-1 street names and address number ranges. The Atlas contains 371 pages of maps covering the county; each page measures 11 x 12.6 inches. It includes a user's guide and feature index, and three sections of maps organized by map scale, as shown in the table and explained below.

Atlas Section Map
Scale
Page Coverage Page Overlap Number
of Pages
County Coverage Sample Page No.
Yellow 1 : 40,000 10 x 10 km 2 km 84 99.9% 44
Orange 1 : 20,000 5 x 5 km 1 km 135 45.0% 45B
Red 1 : 10,000 2.5 x 2.5 km 500 m 153 12.0% 45B3
  • Atlas Section refers to the three main divisions of maps in the Atlas, labeled for convenience with the background colour of the page numbers and page references. The maps are categorized into these three sections based on their map scale.

  • Map Scale is the ratio of map distance to ground distance. A scale of 1 : 40,000 means that one centimetre on the map represents 40,000 centimetres (or 400 metres) on the ground. Any unit of distance can be used, so this scale also means that 1 inch on the map represents 40,000 inches (3,333 feet or approximately two-thirds of a mile) on the ground.

    • Note: to print the Atlas Pages at the proper scale, use tabloid paper (11 x 17 inches) and fit the image to the page. The height and width of the printed map image should measure exactly 25 centimetres and the page can then be trimmed to 11 x 12.6 inches. Note that if printing to the proper scale is not possible, the graphic scale bar in the side margin on each page will still be correct, but the scale ratio (e.g. 1:40,000) should be ignored.

  • Page Coverage refers to the ground area covered by the map on each page, including the overlap area with adjacent pages.

  • Page Overlap is the width of the map area along the four edges of each page that is duplicated on adjacent pages. This is included so that details that extend over the edge of one page can be viewed in their entirety on an adjacent page.

  • Number of Pages and County Coverage - only the maps in the Yellow section cover (almost) the entire county. The maps in the other sections are produced only where needed to represent the more detailed road information in some areas. The maps on the divider pages at the beginning of each section provide an overview of that coverage.

  • Sample Page No. shows the differences between the page designations in each section: the pages in the Yellow section are composed of two numeric digits, followed by an alphabetic character for pages in the Orange section, and finally with another numeric digit in the Red section. These page designations are designed to show the relationships between maps in the various sections. The number of characters in the page designation can also be used to differentiate maps in each section.

Map Page Downloads

Individual atlas pages can be downloaded from this site at no cost. Simply examine the series of four maps below to determine which page(s) you want and follow the download instructions.  Other Atlas components (User's Guide, Feature Index, Legend, Covers, and Section Dividers) can be downloaded with the links at the very bottom of this page.

All atlas pages are provided as high resolution (300 dpi) PNG (Portable Network Graphics) image files, which can be viewed and printed using your web browser and most image software applications (such as Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, Microsoft Photo Editor, Jasc Paint Shop Pro, Adobe Photoshop, etc). Let's get started...

1. First, locate the area in which you are interested on the map below. This simple reference map includes (original) townships, all roads, large & medium-sized lakes, and major settlements. The blue grid is based on the UTM coordinate system with thin blue lines appearing at one kilometer intervals and heavy lines depicting the Atlas page grid. For a magnified view of this map, click on the image to open a new browser window. Otherwise, check the maps below for the Atlas page(s) you need.

2. This second map shows the pages available in the "Yellow" section of the the Atlas, along with their page numbers. This section covers the entire county with maps that are designed to be printed at a scale of 1:40,000. Each page covers an area of 10 x 10 kilometres including the one kilometre of overlap with adjacent pages. If these pages provide enough detail for your needs, click on the image below to download the page you need. If you would like a more detailed page, check maps 3 and 4 below to see if one exists for your area.

3. This third map shows the pages available in the "Orange" section of the the Atlas. These pages are included for areas that have too many streets to be labelled at the smaller scale above. Each 1:20,000 map page covers an area of 5 x 5 kilometres, including the 500 metres of overlap with adjacent pages. If your area is available at this level of detail, click on the image below to download the page you need. If it is not available, refer to the Yellow section above. If you would like an even more detailed page, check #4 below to see if one exists for your area.

4. This fourth and final map shows the pages available in the "Red" section of the the Atlas. These pages are included for areas that have too many streets to be labelled at the smaller scale above. Each 1:10,000 map page covers an area of 2.5 x 2.5 kilometres, including the 250 metres of overlap with adjacent pages. If your area is available at this level of detail, click on the image below to download the page you need. If it is not available, refer to the Orange or Yellow sections above.

In addition to all the map pages provided above, there are a number of additional maps and documents in the Atlas as listed below.

Atlas Covers and Section Dividers (PNG files)

These image files provide both sides of the front and back cover of the Atlas, as well as dividers to be inserted at the beginning of each of the three Atlas sections (i.e. the Yellow, Orange, and Red sections as explained above). Note that the Legend is inserted twice, once as the inside back cover, and again as the back of the divider for section 1. In the list below, these pages appear in the order of appearance in the Atlas. In the hardcopy version of the Atlas, these five sheets are laminated.

Like the map images above, these atlas pages are provided as high resolution PNG (Portable Network Graphics) image files, which can be viewed and printed using your web browser and most image software applications. Simply click on the page link below and, once the image is fully displayed in a new browser window, right-click on it and select Save Image As...
