The U.S. Geological Survey is raising the rates it charges for various maps, effective March 1, the agency announced late Monday.

Here is the rest of the news release:

The price for the USGS Primary Series topographic quadrangle maps (7.5 minute — 1:24,000, 1:25,000, 1:20,000 scales; 7.5 x 15 minute — 1:25,000 scale; Alaska 1:63,360 scale) will increase from $6 to $8 per sheet.

The price for most other USGS map titles and scales, including 1:100,000-scale series, 1:250,000-scale series and smaller scale topographic maps, will increase from $7 to $9 per sheet.

Geologic quadrangles and thematic map prices will vary from $9 to $80 per title, depending on the number of sheets and/or whether the product is produced by print-on-demand. Print-on-demand thematic products may be priced at $5 per square foot.

The price for National Earthquake Information Center maps will increase from $10 to $12 per sheet.

Prices for select large format maps will vary by size.
