The Cocos (Keeling) Islands group in the eastern Indian Ocean
has been mapped by Australian agencies. The Australian
Surveying and Land Information Group (AUSLIG)
includes the islands in its mapping of external territories,
with maps published on the UTM projection, Australian
National spheroid, WGS 1972. A single-sheet 1:50,000
scale map published in the early 1970s, was revised in 1986. A two-sheet 1:25,000 scale six-color map was compiled by
the Royal Australian Survey Corps (RSvy) and published in
1979. Both show relief with 10 m contours. An image map
of the islands derived from SPOT imagery and incorporating
tourist information was also recently published by AUSLIG.
