The national mapping agency in Malawi is the Survey Department (MSD) which is responsible for the publication of official mapping of the country including topographic and some thematic surveys. MSD was set up in its present form in 1950, but prior to independence in 1960 mapping was largely carried out in British colonial programs administered through the Federal Surveys of Rhodesia and Nyasaland by the British Directorate of Overseas Surveys (DOS) (now Ordnance Survey International (OSI)). 1:50,000 scale mapping was instigated in the 1950s, on the Transverse Mercator projection, modified Clarke 1880 ellipsoid, and using quarter-degree sheet lines. Contoured editions were introduced in the 1960s, the latest specification of this series had 50 ft intervals and the series was completed in 1971. Revision continued until the mid-1980s, when sheets in a new metric series on UTM grid zone sheet lines started to appear. This new map has 20 m contours and will eventually replace the old quarter-degree mapping, but sheets from the older series will continue to be available until the new series is completed. New 1:250,000 scale mapping in 10 sheets was completed between 1991 and 1996, replacing earlier mapping at this scale on different sheet lines. This scale also conforms to UTM specifications, and has 100 m contours. New single-sheet 1:1,000 000,scale mapping also follows UTM specifications and is published as a tourist edition, complete with inset town plans and a smaller scale map on the reverse. Soviet military topographic mapping of Malawi exists at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (3 sheets, complete coverage, published in 1985); 1:500,000 (8 sheets, complete coverage, published 1983-1985) and 1:200,000 (30 sheets, complete coverage, published 1981-1984). These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
