Formerly a British Crown Colony, Malta became fully independent
in 1964, and in 1974 was constituted a Republic
within the British Commonwealth. Modern mapping of the
three islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino had previously
been undertaken by the British Government in cooperation
with the Office of Public Works, Valletta. Early in the
present century, large-scale GSGS series at scales of 1:2,500
and 1:10,560 were published, together with a general map
at 1:31,680 (GSGS 3859) which has served as a base map
for soil and geological maps.
Soviet military topographic mapping of Malta exists at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (2 sheets, complete coverage, published 1983-1984);
1:500,000 (2 sheets, complete coverage, published 1968-1992); 1:200,000 (2 sheets, complete coverage, published in 1988); 1:100,000 (4 sheets, complete coverage,
published in 1987) and 1:50,000 (6 sheets, complete coverage, published in 1977). These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats
from East View Geospatial.
