Hi All,

I am very pleased to say I now have the 1970s / 1980s 1:50k
topographic series of Namibia online:


I was able to purchase scans of 1218 of the required 1221 sheets from
Madmappers.com and run a nearly successful GoFundMe campaign to recoup
costs, which will allow me follow up with other countries:

If anyone is able to help me get good scans of the following sheets it
would be very much appreciated.

* Sheet 1712CC (missing)
* Sheet 1819BB (missing)
* Sheet 1820AA (missing)
* Sheet 1712BD_Okakora_Ed-1-sgswa_1980 (poor quality scan)
* Sheet 2214CB-DA-Swakopmund_Ed-1-sgswa_1981 (poor quality scan)
* Sheet 2214CD-DC_Walvisbaai_Ed-1-sgswa_1981  (poor quality scan)
* Sheet 2314CB-DA_photomap_Ed-1-sgswa_1980  (poor quality scan)

Any feedback or comment?

Any recommendations on which country to try next? Any help greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
