  5. Sir, this is really helpful for us to have the degree sheets. But can you provide any links to download the toposheets (1:50,000 scale). If you will provide the link then that will be really helpful for a geologists like me.
    Thank you.

  6. An interesting information is… how old are these maps, because they seems veeeery old

  7. I really enjoy your blog with its many HowTo videos. However it will be better if you can include some text to accompany the videos. Not all of us have enough bandwidth to look at videos always.
