  • Scale of 1:250,000 (1 cm = 2.5km).
  • Markings of national roads
  • National borders
  • Marking of streams, rivers, lakes, mountains.
  • Updated at least once a year.

The National Institute for Cartography and Remote Sensing ( sells maps of Algeria. Both topographic and thematic maps. Maps are not available online, as they are being sold.

A list of maps is shown here (, though most of them are not according to the required scale, there is one "Carte d'Algerie et ses environs" is at 1:200,000.

Here there are topographic maps of scales 1:50,000 and 1:200,000, - and here are spatial maps

Not sure how often the maps are updated.
