Cameroon assumed its present form in 1961, when it became a federal republic. In 1972 it became a unitary republic and was renamed in 1984 as the Republic of Cameroon. Some rudimentary mapping was carried out before 1916 when it was a German colony, and subsequently the British, who had a trusteeship of part of the territory prior to 1961, also undertook some mapping. The modern mapping of Cameroon is essentially a product of French survey undertaken after World War II by the Institut Géographique National (IGN). Progress benefited from the establishment of an IGN mapping center at Yaoundé in 1959. In 1975 this became the Centre Géographique National, and in 1993, the current topographic mapping organization, the Institut National de Cartographie (INCC), was created. The country has been covered by a series of 46 one-degree sheets at 1:200,000 scale. Publication began in 1953 and was completed in the 1970s. All sheets are in a six-colour regular edition with 40 m contours. Projection is UTM, Clarke 1880 ellipsoid. A 1:50,000 scale mapping programme also began in the 1950s and new sheets continued to be issued until the late 1970s. These quarter-degree sheets are in four colours with 20 m interval contours and are also on the UTM projection. Of a projected 667 sheets, 242 have been published. In the area bordering Lake Chad, some photomap sheets at this scale were also produced by the British Directorate of Overseas Surveys for the Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC/CBLT). A 1:500,000 scale cover of Cameroon was published between 1963 and 1976 using sheet lines modified from the standard IMW format. Soviet military topographic mapping of Cameroon exists at the following scales: 1:1 000 000 (6 sheets, complete coverage, published 1983-1987); 1:500 000 (18 sheets, complete coverage, published 1962-1985); 1:200 000 (78 sheets, complete coverage, published 1979-1982) and city (1:10,000 to 1:25,000) topographic maps of Luanda, Ndjamena and Yaounde published between 1976 and 1980. These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
