Western Sahara Maps and places of interest
Can anyone advise me on a good Western Sahara map, if one exists
I have a few Moroccan maps with basic WS map and a few downloaded maps but nothing that detailed
Also anything worth seeing?
There is plenty of nice desert to see in W. Sahara. Some resources from this forum and beyond:
www.desert-info.ch :: Thema anzeigen - Minen/Landmines/Des Mines - alle/all/toutes infos
As far as maps go, we resorted to the usual suspects - Michelin, Rough Guide Map, Google Earth and Olaf for the GPS.
Yeah, I got the Mich, Rough guide and Olafs GPS so I guess thats the best there is
Thanks for the links
There are French 250ks from the 60s-80s which got right down to the Mori border and have similar detail to IGNs. But of course on the Moroccan side a lot has happened since then, including landmines as mentioned above.
More here: Morocco Overland ~ Morocco map reviews
Scroll down to the bottom:
'French 1:250k (1960/80? - CD, paper)'
IMO only worth bothering with if you are serious about exploring outback WS, but then again the regular modern maps are pretty skimpy down there. Might be worth having a look at TPCs, too.
Thanks for the info
I wont be paying the EUR70 for the French stuff but have downloaded many, many of the single free ones, they are great
I like very much Russian maps.You can buy them here Download Western Sahara topographic maps - mapstor.com
They are more recent than the French ones (80´s/90´s).
Don´t forget that this territory is dangerous because of the mines and other explosive artifacts. Every year there are fatal accidents (take a look at the MINURSO reports). You must keep always on used pistes and forget the ancient ones unused and off-piste.
Yes , I have these - they are great especially as my girlfriend is Russian :thumbup1:
cheers for the links
