- The 1949 map celebrated Minnesota's territorial centennial, making it the first official map to have a theme other than basic tourism.
- The reverse side of the map was taken up almost entirely by a feature on the development of Minnesota's earliest roads, forcing the city insets to be left off for a year. The Twin Cities and Duluth insets were moved to the front of the map and greatly reduced in size.
- The map key has been moved again, this time to a position over northern Wisconsin. It would be placed here in 1950 as well.
- The 1949 map was the first to not have "maintained
earth" as a paving status.
