Mapping in Malaysia continues to reflect differing organizational and cartographic histories. Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo were British colonies until independence in 1963 and were mapped by British agencies, while peninsular Malaysia (Semenanjung) has a longer history of independent mapping. There has been a gradual process of standardization between different products and series, with a move to consistent use of metric specifications for all products. Official topographic and earth science mapping programs are now coordinated through national agencies. The national mapping agency is the Department of Survey and Mapping Malaysia (Jabatan Ukur dan Pemetaan Malaysia (JUPEM)), which coordinates all official cadastral, geodetic, photogrammetric and topographic surveying and mapping activities for the whole of Malaysia from headquarters in Kuala Lumpur. Topographic mapping is carried out by the Directorate of National Mapping (Direktorat Pemetaan Negara) within JUPEM. The first survey office in the country was established in 1909 as the Federated Malay States Survey Department and plane-table surveying of the Malayan Peninsula was carried out in conjunction with British military agencies and the Survey of India until after World War II. By 1941 60 percent of Malaya was covered by one-inch scale topographic maps and the remainder of the series was completed by 1953 using photogrammetry. A new map at this scale (Series L7010) was initiated in 1950 and completed in 1974. This has now been withdrawn following completion of 1:50,000 mapping, but sheet lines continue to be used in thematic series. The 1:25,000 scale (Series L8010), initiated at the same time as (L7010), covers all developed parts of the country apart from mountainous areas, with neat lines conforming to grid lines. The current national map series for the peninsula is the 1:50,000 scale (Series L7030), based upon a rectified skew orthomorphic projection around a central meridian of 324° E and the Everest ellipsoid. This is a fully metric map, compiled by photogrammetric interpretation of aerial coverage, showing relief with 25 m contours and was completed in 177 sheets in 1995. Larger-scale topographic programs include (Series L905) which covers over 100 towns in West Malaysia, mostly at scales of 1:5,000 or 1:10,000. Since 1992 JUPEM has standardized the map size for sheets in this series. Revised 1:10,000 scale mapping of Kuala Lumpur has been carried out. Topographic programs in Sabah and Sarawak were initiated after the end of World War II by the Directorate of Overseas Surveys (now Ordnance Survey International (OSI)). A 1:50,000 series began in 1960 using photogrammetric techniques, with contours in feet, and was completed for most of Sabah, and for all of Sarawak in 210 sheets. Each covered a 15 quadrangle and conformed to standard DOS specifications. With the completion of 1:50,000 scale mapping of West Malaysia effort has shifted to updating the map base for Borneo and the first sheets in a new metric 1:50,000 specification in (Series T738) have started to appear. A total of 278 maps will be needed to complete this series. Soviet military topographic mapping of Malaysia exists at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (8 sheets, complete coverage, published 1953-1960); 1:500,000 (19 sheets, complete coverage, published 1961-1987); 1:200,000 (41 sheets, complete coverage of Peninsular Malaysia, partial coverage of Sabah and Sarawak, published 1964-1983) and city (1:10,000 to 1:25,000) topographic mapping of Georgetown (Pinang) and Ipoh published between 1981 and 1983. These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
