Topographic maps have been critical to the development of mankind and will continue to be important to our future development.
They depict natural and man-made features of the Earth's surface including landforms (represented by contours and spot heights), streams, lakes, dams, swamps, roads and tracks, localities, built-up areas, vegetation, conservation, defence and forestry reserves.
New Regional Topographic Map at the scale of 1:500 000 of Kavango, Omusati, Ohangwena, Caprivi, Kunene , Oshikoto and Omusati will be available by the middle or end 2004
These maps will help the regional councilors in the planning of the developmental projects in their specific regions.
