The national mapping agency in Mozambique is Direcçào
Nacional de Geografía e Cadastro (DINAGECA). It is
responsible for topographic and cadastral mapping of the
country and has inherited a mapping infrastructure established
in the colonial era prior to Mozambique's independence
in 1975. Colonial mapping was carried out under
Portuguese administration with large-sheet series published
at 1:250,000 and at 1:500,000 scales. 1:50,000 scale
mapping started in 1958, based upon new surveys and
published as quarter-degree quadrangles on the UTM projection,
Clarke 1866 ellipsoid. Progress on this and other
mapping projects had been intermittent until the end of
civil war in 1992. Surveying for this series was completed
for the whole country by 1995 and about 85 percent of the
1,207 sheets required for complete coverage had been
published by 1997. A French aid program is being used
to revise parts of this map, using LANDSAT and SPOT
imagery, but most sheets in this series were prepared by
photogrammetry prior to independence and are still only
available as ozalid prints. New photogrammetric mapping
on the UTM projection at 1:250,000 was started in 1967,
and all the maps in this 102 sheet series were revised in
Smaller scale mapping is also compiled. A new 1:500,000
scale map in 23 sheets was started in 1988 and 1:1,000,000
topographic coverage is also published by DINAGECA.
Single-sheet road, administrative, relief and population
distribution maps are issued, and an A4 (210 mm X 296
mm) format series of 1:2,000,000 scale province maps was
released in 1997. Amongst its other work DINAGECA
compiles urban mapping including two-sheet full-color
1:15,000 coverage of Maputo, with 1:10,000 coverage in
progress for other towns. A 1:50,000 land cover map of the
southern parts of the country has also been started.
Soviet military topographic mapping of Mozambique is available at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (8 sheets, complete coverage, published in 1985);
1:500,000 (25 sheets, complete coverage, published 1983-1985); 1:200,000 (147 sheets, complete coverage, published 1981-1984) and a city (1:10,000) topographic map
of Maputo published in 1982. These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
