The national mapping agency of Myanmar (until 1989 Burma) is the Myanmar Survey Department (MSD) in Yangon. Mapping systems were established by the Survey of India between 1905 and 1944, with complete coverage at 1:126,720 and 1:253,440 scales, and one-inch coverage for 85 percent of Burma, excluding the mountainous north west regions. Since 1959 the one-inch map has gradually been converted into a 1:50,000 series, using the same Lambert conical conformal projection, Everest ellipsoid, and quarter degree sheet lines, but mapping progress has been at best sporadic since the late 1950s. By 1996 this map had been published for about 50 percent of the country: coverage is best in the central regions between Yangon and Mandalay. English place names have been converted into Myanmar equivalents following United Nations Development Program aid. Twenty-eight 1:250,000 scale maps were derived from the completed metric mapping. A new 1:25,000 scale series was completed for the Irrawaddy delta, and 1:5,000 and 1:10,000 scale maps of development areas have also been compiled, including 1:10,000 scale coverage of Yangon in 12 sheets, revised to 1995. Smaller scale series have also been compiled and the Myanmar Survey Department is also responsible for aeronautical charting of the country. Soviet military topographic mapping of Myanmar (Burma) exists at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (10 sheets, complete coverage, published 1959-1973); 1:500,000 (28 sheets, complete coverage, published 1959-1987); 1:200,000 (136 sheets, complete coverage, published 1953-1987); 1:100,000 (331 sheets, eastern country coverage, published 1954-1989) and city (1:10,000 to 1:25,000) topographic mapping of Mandalay, Moulmein (Mawlamyine) and Yangon (Rangoon) published between 1977 and 1980. These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
