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


There are several government organizations related to geospatial data collection:

The Tommy Guardia Institute recently led several projects in an effort to create geographically accurate national maps, but the maps themselves are not publicly available and not online. To get a map (in digital or physical form), a person must go to the Tommy Guardia Institute's office and pay $50.00 for the 1:250000 map.

Also on their website, there is a portal at the bottom of the page called "Cors" where anyone can log in with username "corsigntg" and password "corsigntg " and retrieve what looks like geographic data collected on a monthly basis. (Log in here) I don't personally understand the data, but it looks like latitudes and longitudes and I believe this page explains the data format.
