Need help finding Maryland map sources

As part of the Maryland barn raising, I (Michael Ritchey or Ritcheymt) would LOVE your help finding Websites and other sources of Maryland maps. Below I'm going to develop a bibliography of such sources that we can then draw from to overhaul the Maryland maps page. If you want, you can add just a really informal reference to a site or source you know of, and we can flesh out the citation later.
