NEW Fire Insurance Maps online Subscription Service

FIM online (FIMo) is our new online subscription service for libraries and historical societies that provides user-friendly access to our unique and extensive historical map collection. HIG owns the world’s largest digital collection of color fire insurance maps, real estate atlases and similar land use maps for North America. Our high definition, color and gray-scale images display important historical details not visible on black and white map scans.

FIMo includes map research tools and search tips to make finding maps for a specific location easier than ever before.  Maps in our collection include publications by Sanborn, Perris, Hexamer, Whipple, Baist, Bromley, Hopkins and others.  FIMo is an invaluable resource for research on urban development patterns, past property uses and occupants, family homes, genealogy, and more!

Who can benefit by using FIMo? Many libraries and historical societies subscribe to online map services to fulfill the needs of patrons who are engineers, environmental professionals, attorneys, historians, genealogists, government agency researchers, architectural, engineering, or urban studies students, and the general public.

To request a demonstration of FIMo or find out more about FIMo, please contact us at 952-253-2004 or
