The official topographic mapping authority in Argentina is the Instituto Geográfico Militar (IGMA), Buenos Aires, which is a technical branch of the Argentine Army. It has its origins in the Military Topographic Bureau created in 1879. The principal tasks of IGMA are to undertake the geodetic and topographic survey of the national territory and to coordinate all geo-topographic work required by the state. IGMA has also carried out mapping of areas claimed by Argentina in the Antarctic and South Atlantic. There are four official topographic map series. The 1:500,000 scale series is complete in 70 sheets for the whole country, and 1:250,000 scale mapping is almost complete; about 60 percent of the country has been covered at 1:100,000 scale; while 1:50,000 scale mapping is 26 percent complete, covering principally Buenos Aires province and adjacent areas to the north. A Gauss-Krϋger projection, International ellipsoid, is used for all these series, and the country is divided into seven zones, each 3 degrees of longitude wide. The sheet system of these series is graticule-based, with the sheet lines of the larger series nesting within those of the smaller. The 1:500,000 scale sheets each cover 3 degrees of longitude and 2 degrees of latitude. 1:250,000 scale sheets each cover one-quarter of this area, while the 1:100,000 scale sheets fit nine to a 1:250,000 sheet. The 1:500,000 scale sheets vary in quality. Relief is layer-colored or shaded, and a graticule and grid is printed on the maps. The current series of 1:250,000 scale sheets was initiated in 1952. Sheets are in six or more colors with a contour interval varying from mountain to plain, and there is a 10 km grid. A few sheets were issued in the PAIGH Hemispheric Mapping Program. The 1:100,000 scale series is in three to five colors with a contour interval varying from 2.5 m to 100 m, and a 4 km grid, while the 1:50,000 series has a 1 km grid spacing and the more modern sheets are in five colors. The contour interval again varies, and may be as close as 1.25 m in areas of low relief. Soviet military topographic mapping of Argentina is available at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (26 sheets, complete coverage, published 1962-1990); 1:500,000 (79 sheets, complete coverage, published 1965-1991); 1:200,000 (362 sheets, western country coverage, published 1980-1985) and city (1:10,000 to 1:25,000) topographic mapping of 9 major cities from Bahia Blanca to Tucuman published between 1978 and 1985. These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
