When you are citing a print map, it can be a single sheet map or a series of sheet maps. I have included examples below.
Basic format for a single sheet map:
Author. (year). Title [format]. Edition. Scale. Place of publication: Publisher.
Metsker Maps. (1979). Metsker's map of Island county, Washington [map]. (ca. 1:70,000.) Tacoma,
WA: Metsker Maps.
Note: The abbreviation ca. stands for "approximately" and is used when a date, or in this instance a scale, is not known exactly.
Basic format for a series of sheet maps:
Author. (year). Title [format]. Edition. Scale. Series, Map Number. Place of publication: Publisher.
Easterbrook, D. J. (1976). Geologic map of western Whatcom County, Washington [map]. 1:62,500.
Miscellaneous investigations series, map 1-854-B. Reston, VA: U.S. Geological Survey.
