Catalogue Section

Knowledge obtained from maps is vital for research in Urban Planning and Architecture and public access to such material is limited in the city of Karachi. To fulfill this need, the Archives team undertook an extensive survey and research exercise and through it numerous maps have been collected from various governmental and non-governmental organizations (KMC, CDGK, Survey of Pakistan, etc.). A computerized searchable data base and a visual catalogue has been developed and is available to researchers on the computers of the Multimedia Section.The section houses key maps of Pakistan and specifically Karachi, which includes the following:
