Country: Sierra Leone | Online Store | East View Geospatial

Sierra Leone was well mapped under British aid projects carried out in the 1960s and 1970s, but almost no mapping progress has been achieved in the last 25 years. Topographic mapping of the country was carried out by the British Directorate of Overseas Surveys (DOS) (now Ordnance Survey International (OSI) ). A 1:50,000 scale map was compiled using photogrammetric techniques and sheets were published to cover quarter-degree quadrangles, with 13 nonstandard sheets for some border or coastal areas. This map was on a Transverse Mercator projection, modified Clarke 1880 ellipsoid, and second edition sheets were published by 1973 as five-color maps showing relief with 50 ft contours, to give complete coverage of Sierra Leone in 111 sheets. A derived map at 1:250,000 scale covered the country in four sheets and DOS also issued a single sheet 1:500,000 scale map, last published in its eighth edition in 1976. Larger scale DOS mapping included 1:2,500 scale township plans, most published as two-color photogrammetric plots, and a 1:10,000 scale series (DOS 219) covering the Freetown peninsula. Current responsibility for mapping falls to the Directorate of Surveys and Lands (DSL) in the Department of Lands, Housing and the Environment. It participated in the DOS mapping programs and was originally established in l925. DSL continues to use the DOS base mapping, though almost no revision has taken place. Soviet military topographic mapping of Sierra Leone exists at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (4 sheets, complete coverage, published in 1986), 1:500,000 (4 sheets, complete coverage, published in 1985), 1:200,000 (17 sheets, complete coverage, published in 1985) and a city (scales differ) map of Freetown published in 1984. These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial .
