The French overseas territory of New Caledonia has been
mapped by French survey authorities, in conjunction with
locally established offices. Institut Géographique National (IGN) cooperates with the Service des Infrastructures de
la Topographie et des Transports Territoriaux (SITTT) in Nouméa in the publication of a 41-sheet 1:50,000 scale map.
This is compiled to Série orange specifications on the UTM
projection, International ellipsoid, and when completed in
1994 replaced 1:50,000 mapping compiled by the French in 1962. The current specification uses 20 m
contours and is compiled from 1:40,000 scale aerial photography flown in 1982.
Soviet military topographic mapping of New Caledonia is available at the following scale: 1:1,000,000 (5 sheets, complete coverage, published 1964-1973). This product is
available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
