The CTA map index was researched and devised by Roy Benedict and Bob Heinlein. Thanks to both these gentlemen, we are able to benefit from the hard work and dedication.

Dates on CMC maps have been gathered from research of the printed map itself as well as information from experts.

The full maps are now available! "Front" designates the side with the main map. "Back" designates the opposite side.
