The Lebanese national mapping agency is the Directorate
of Geographic Affairs (DAG). Established in 1962 as a part
of the Ministry of Defence, DAG is now responsible for
geodetic, topographic, cadastral and aerial surveying and for
the publication of official mapping. There has been very
little new mapping in the last two decades, and almost all
of the official map base still dates from between 1964 and
the mid-1970s, when series following French
mapping standards were initiated to replace earlier military
mapping. Contoured monochrome plans were published
during this period for selected areas at 1:1,000, 1:2,000 and
1:5,000 scales; over 1,000 sheets were issued, with coverage
restricted to urban and some productive agricultural areas.
The basic scale for the whole country remains a five-color
1:20,000 scale map published between 1964 and 1974,
which covers Lebanon in 121 sheets. This map uses an
oblique stereographic projection, Clarke ellipsoid, shows
relief with 10 m contours and was published in Arabic and
French. A few sheets have been revised since publication,
but plans to update the mapping base to French Série bleue
specifications have not come to fruition, nor has there been
any significant investment in digital mapping systems. An
old 1:50,000 scale series using Lambert's conical conformal
projection is no longer maintained but sheets are still available.
In addition a new 12-sheet map derived from the
1:20,000 scale was started, and a 1:100,000 scale map
prepared. Single-sheet coverage at 1:200,000 scale has been
issued for 10 different themes. A new version of the tourist map at this
scale has, however, recently been updated, and published in
Arabic, English and French editions and in 1991 DAG
published a 1:10,000 scale photomap of Beirut and its
Soviet military topographic mapping of Lebanon is available at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (2 sheets, complete coverage, published 1974-1990);
1:500,000 (4 sheets, complete coverage, published 1981-1987); 1:200,000 (8 sheets, complete coverage, published in 1985); 1:100,000 (16 sheets, complete coverage,
published in 1983); 1:50,000 (45 sheets, complete coverage, published 1983-1991) and city (1:10,000) topographic mapping of Beirut, Sidon and Tripoli published between
1971 and 1987. These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
