Gibraltar was mapped for the Gibraltar Government by the
UK Directorate of Overseas Surveys (now Ordnance Survey
International), and a set of contoured 1:2,500 scale maps was
published in 1970.
Current large scale maps cover the territory at 1:500 (47
sheets); 1:1,250 (12 sheets); 1:2,500 (six sheets) and 1:5,000
(one sheet), and are produced and maintained by the
Drawing Office of the Department of Trade and Industry.
The 1:500 scale sheets are currently being updated. The
maps are contoured (at 3 m up to and including 60 m, and
at 10 m thereafter). Heights are referred to the Alicante
datum and the projection is Transverse Mercator with UTM
grid, International ellipsoid.
Soviet military topographic mapping of Gibraltar exists at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (1 sheet, complete coverage, published in 1985);
1:500,000 (1 sheet, complete coverage, published in 1984); 1:200,000 (1 sheet, complete coverage, published in 1991); 1:100,000 (1 sheet, complete coverage,
published in 1990) and a city (1:10,000 to 1:25,000) topographic map of Gibraltar published in 1974. These products are available in print, digital raster and digital
vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
