Modern mapping of Papua New Guinea was established by Australian agencies in the years leading up to independence in 1975 and Australian bilateral agreements continue to fund development of basic mapping of the country after independence. The National Mapping Bureau (NMB) is the official mapping agency, but following completion in 1981 of basic scale 1:100,000 scale mapping there has been little further topographic mapping progress. The 1:100,000 series is published on very similar specifications to Australian national mapping: it is a five-color map using the Transverse Mercator projection, and depicts relief with 40 m contours. Mainland areas are based upon Australian Geodetic Datum, offshore islands use the World Geodetic System 1972, the series was compiled from 1:80,000 to 1:100,000 scale aerial coverage and is complete in 280 sheets. A 1:250,000 scale map is also published by NMB and conforms to JOG specifications with UTM grid and 200 m contours (50 m in lowland areas). This covers Papua New Guinea in 73 sheets. Larger scale topographic coverage is also available for some areas of the country, 1:50,000 and 1:25,000 scale mapping is maintained for the capital area and for parts of Bougainville and New Ireland. Soviet military topographic mapping of Papua New Guinea is available at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (10 sheets, complete coverage, published 1952-1976) and 1:500,000 (8 sheets, partial country coverage, published 1963-1964). These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats froom East View Geospatial.
