Publications by series


HDSC is providing digital versions of various publications from this office dating back to 1943. Please note that some of these documents are superseded by later publications.

Not all documents have been digitized yet, and the site will be updated periodically as they become ready.

The scanned documents have undergone optical character recognition (OCR). Because of the condition of the hard copies, some older documents may have issues with OCR, so please contact us as necessary about those documents. In addition, some oversized maps were fragile and could not be scanned at this time.

The "Comments" column in the tables below provides information regarding the state of the document and resulting digital version (e.g., if specific pages have not been scanned or have OCR issues, "coming soon", or if the document was superseded).

Lastly, please be aware that some documents may contain maps which may be of a different size than the rest of the document.

Viewing the documents requires the Adobe Acrobat Reader (click here to download).
Viewing the shapefiles for HMR 58 and HMR 59 requires a Geographic Information System (GIS).
