For my research related to coastal Odisha, India I am mapping the coastal boundary. I have downloaded available Landsat images which date back to 1972. But I want to map the same for before 1972.

I am interested in old topographic maps showing the coastal boundary of Odisha, preferably before 1970.

Does anyone know from where can I get the scanned map of the same?

The PCL Map Collection (University of Texas at Austin) is a huge online collection of maps. For India, they have a series from the U.S. Army Map Service which might be of interest, as it dates from the 50's and has a decent scale (1:250,000). They also have older maps from the British era, but the series doesn't seem to be complete. It might be worth looking for those at the Royal Geographical Society archives.
