This data category requires a high level national map. To satisfy this category, the following minimum criteria must be met:

  • 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.

Data Location


The official website of the National Boundary Commission that should release the digital maps is unavailable.

Their official website s now available at but the maps tab has no information yet.

Maybe the Office of the Surveyor General of the Federation as well at They have aggregates of digital maps domiciled in their offices, and might make it available online soon
