Hi Grant

Thanks for sharing the information, unfortunately I do not know where you will be able to get the Namibia topo maps. I did however try to reach them previously to get SG diagrams and I could not reach them so I phoned a local land surveyor in Windhoek who told me that there are no scanned pdf's available and one must go to the Namibia SG and physically look for the data. So hopefully this won't be the same case.

Do you by any chance have a WMS URL for this map https://htonl.dev.openstreetmap.org/ngi-tiles/

Hi All,

Does anyone have a contact I could speak to at the Namibian Directorate of Survey and Mapping? Preferably via email, I have tried phoning, but have been unable to get through.

I am trying to see if it possible to get digital copies of their 1:50k topographic series maps. Alternatively scanned? What is the cost?
Could I get copies of the older series from the South African NGI?

Myself and a colleague received copies of the South African 1:50k topographic series and we created this site:

I want to create a similar site for the Namibia 1:50k series.

PS: I'd happy to create similar sites for any other African country where I can receive copies of their topographic maps. Work at the mapping agency or have a good contact? Please advise.

PPS: Madmappers have seemingly have the entire series, but I haven't been able to contact them successfully. Anyone have a contact?

Kind regards,
