    The Inter-Service Topographic Department collection contains 1045 maps, aerial photographs, and drawings from World War II. The ISTD (1940-1946) was a joint British army and navy program that supplied topographic intelligence for all combined British military operations. The department was created following the failed British invasion of Norway (April 9 - May 9, 1940), during which British army and navy intelligence units operated independently rather than collaboratively.
