The U.S. Virgin Islands are an unincorporated territory of
the United States, purchased from Denmark in 1917. The
main islands are St. Thomas, St. John and, widely separated
to the south, St. Croix. They have been mapped by the
United States Geological Survey (USGS) at the scale of
1:24,000. These maps are in five colors with contours at
40 ft or 20 ft intervals according to relief gradients. The
projection is Polyconic (Clarke 1866 ellipsoid), to which a
UTM grid has been added in revised versions.
Soviet military topographic mapping of the U.S. Virgin Islands is available at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (1 sheet, complete coverage, published in 1966);
1:500,000 (2 sheets, complete coverage, published in 1979) and 1:200,000 (4 sheets, complete coverage, published 1966-1976). These products are available in print,
digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
