Map and Geographic Information Center (MAGIC)

Copy Services in the Map Room

  • MAGIC has a large-sized (36” wide) scanner/printer/copier that can be used to scan or make copies of most of the maps in our collection. It can scan in color or black and white. Scans can be saved to a flash drive or emailed (if small enough), or printed on paper at the cost of $.75 per square foot for a black/white copy. We are able to mail copies if you are not in the Albuquerque area. 
  • We also have a flatbed color scanner capable of scanning media up 12" x 17". Scanning on either scanner is free of charge.
  • Our color plotter (42 " wide) can print color from tiff or pdf files on double weight mat paper. The cost is $4.00 per square foot.

Please note that copyright restrictions apply to some maps. It is the patron's responsibility to be sure that copyright laws are not being violated. In case of doubt, consult the map publisher or a copyright lawyer.
