Official mapping of Vietnam is carried out by divisions of the General Directorate of Land Administration (Tong Cuc Dia Chin (TCDC)) in Hanoi. In 1997 the Cartographic Mapping Institute, the Cartographic Publishing House and the Department of Land Administration Printing Enterprise merged to form a single mapping body responsible for the publication of all official mapping of the country and designated as the Cartographic Publishing House. The history of official mapping of Vietnam can be traced back to the foundation of a mapping office in 1899 in Hanoi by the French. Topographic surveying under French colonial authorities included a program of 1:100,000 scale coverage, based upon the Bonne projection, Clarke 1880 ellipsoid, as well as larger scale coverage of some areas. 1:100,000 coverage of most of Indochina was revised in the early 1950s using aerial photography. For the 20 year period from 1955 to 1975 Vietnam was divided. Mapping of South Vietnam was carried out from the Dalat headquarters of the National Geographic Directorate, with aid from the American Army Map Service. Re-triangulation and photogrammetric interpretation of aerial photography allowed the production of a new 1:50,000 scale series, using the UTM projection, Everest ellipsoid, and employing a 15' x 15' sheet format, which was completed in 1967. During the American Vietnam War picto- and orthophoto-mapping at larger scales was carried out for many areas of the country. A 1:250,000 scale series was also completed and revised, with 16 sheets for each 1:1,000,000 IMW quadrangle. Meanwhile North Vietnam was mapped according to Russian specifications by the National Administration of Geodesy and Cartography, with maps using the Gauss Conformal transverse cylindrical projection, Krassovsky ellipsoid, and published for the whole of North Vietnam at scales of 1:50,000, 1:100,000, 1:200,000, 1:500,000 and 1:1,000,000. Sheets have been revised using satellite imagery, with few changes to specifications, American style mapping continues to be published for southern areas of the country. A total of 588 1:50,000 scale maps are needed to cover the whole of the unified Vietnam, 1:100,000 coverage needs 164 sheets and 1:250,000 scale mapping requires 40 sheets. Soviet military topographic mapping of Vietnam is available at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (9 sheets, complete coverage, published 1965-1985); 1:500,000 (18 sheets, complete coverage, published 1965-1992); 1:200,000 (89 sheets, complete coverage, published 1965-1983); 1:100,000 (265 sheets, complete coverage, published 1978-1991) and city (1:10,000) topographic mapping of Da Nang, Haiphong, Hanoi, Hue and Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) published between 1976 and 1982. These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
