The provinces and districts of Afghanistan have changed numerous times in the past 15 years. The maps below are based on the 34-province and 329-district model and both the province and district map sets give complete coverage of Afghanistan.
Afghanistan Province Maps. 2004/2005. Afghanistan Information Management Services. This is a set of maps covering the 34 districts of Afghanistan. All of the maps are color plots as litho-printed maps were never done for this series. The maps show province and district capitals plus villages; tracks and primary and secondary roads; rivers and lakes. There is no elevation information. All maps are approx. 11.7 x 16.5 inches, thus scale varies with the size of the district. The maps have latitude/longitude ticks every 10' along the margins. The maps are in English. Maps are available only as a set at this time.

Afghanistan Digital Maps
Natural-color Image Mosaics of Afghanistan: Digital Database and Maps. USGS & USAID, 2007. The 50 tiled images in this dataset are natural-color renditions of the calibrated six-band Landsat mosaics created from Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) data. Natural-color images depict the surface as seen by the human eye. The calibration of the Landsat ETM+ maps produced by Davis (2006) are relative reflectance and need to be 'grounded' with ground-reflectance data, but the difficulties in performing fieldwork in Afghanistan precluded ground-reflectance surveys. For natural color calibration, which involves only the blue, green, and red color bands of Landsat, we initially used a MODIS natural-color image, which was then modified using Munsell color readings of ground surfaces to accurately depict the surface color.
Each map quadrangle is 1° of latitude by 1° of longitude. The numbers assigned to each map quadrangle refer to the latitude and longitude coordinates of the lower left corner of the quadrangle. For example, quadrangle Q2960 has its lower left corner at lat 29° N., long 60° E. Each quadrangle overlaps adjacent quadrangles by 100 pixels (2.85 km). Only the 14.25-m-spacial-resolution UTM and 28.5-m-spacial-resolution (WGS84 geographic) geotiff datasets are available as image tiles in this report to decrease the number of DVDs needed. The image tiles are three-band, eight-bit geotiffs with embedded georeferencing. The country of Afghanistan spans three UTM zones: 41-43. A 300 dpi pdf map and three 600 dpi jpeg2000 maps of the entire country are also provided.

Afghanistan Geologic & Thematic Maps
Geology & Mineral Map of Afghanistan. Various scales. USGS, 2006. 52 x 69 inches. This map is derived from digitization of the original data from two 1977 geologic maps/reports. The data is overlain on a shaded relief base map, derived from SRTM data. Some modernization of geologic unit descriptions has been done, but no new geologic field mapping is included in this map. Mineral information is derived from several reports from 1977 to 2002, along with some unpublished field work done by the authors. All in all, a good summary map for those interested in the geology and mineral resources of this area. Sample of the map detail.

(Afghanistan) Topography and Vegetation and Geology of Darrah-e Issik-e Payan (Issik Valley). 1:25,000. Exploration Pamir '75, printed by Freytag/Berndt. This is more a topographic/trekking map than a geologic/vegetation map. The base map is a detailed 1:25,000 topographic map and some geologic/vegetation information is overlain without obscuring the topographic data. The area is along the Issik River and Issik Glacier due south of the Koh-e Pamir mountain in northeastern Afghanistan.
