angola: topographical maps

December 14, 2008

1. from Shuttle Radar Topography Mission, maps of all of Africa — very large (100 MB+) TIFs available; I think detail is pretty decent for making a fair sized country-wide map (at page size display).

(I believe the bottom one is actually in 3d if you have 3d glasses, the blue and red eyed kind)

2. FreeGIS, a list of links to downloadable GIS information, particularly global information.  Could be of use if the above is insufficient.

3. NOAA maps, several at this link (below is a clipped and lower-res version of one of them):

4. Land and ocean topography, both in raster and GIS formats.
