Burkina Faso Road Map. IGN, France. General map of the country with relief shading, showing a large number of small villages and settlements. Roads are classified according to their usability in wet conditions. Towns with accommodation are marked, as are gas stations. Nature reserves and rivers, both permanent and intermittent, are also shown. Latitude and logitude at intervals of 1 degree are marked in the margins and indicated by ticks on the map itself.
Four insets show simple street plans of Ouagadougou and Bobo-Dioulasso, administrative divisions of the country, and the distribution of its ethnic groups. The legend is in French only.

Burkina Faso & Niger Travel Map. 1:1,000,000 & 1:1,950,000. ITMB, 2nd edition, May 2013. Burkina Faso, formerly the French territory of Haute Volta, is one of those quiet countries of Africa that never seem to hit the headlines. It is typical of several of the countries of Africa that we have mapped - it sells steadily, but not spectacularly, and then all of a sudden runs out of copies. We are very pleased that the Codolo family of France agreed to provide us with numerous photos and improved road information as a result of their recent trip to what is actually one of the more interesting interior countries of the continent. We have also been able to re-draw and improve inset maps of the capital Ouagadougoa and of Bobo-Dioulasso, the main trading city on the border with Mali.

Burkina Faso Topographic Maps - TPC/Tactical Pilotage Charts & ONC/Operational Navigation Charts. 1:500,000 & 1:1,000,000. NGA. Standard topographic maps of Sudan are restricted by the Angolans. World Aeronautical Charts, including TPC and ONC charts, cover land areas at a standard size and scale for navigation by aircraft operating at high altitudes. However, their level of detail makes them useful as topographic maps for those areas where little else is available. The topographical information includes city tints, principal roads, railroads, distinctive landmarks, drainage patterns, topography and relief. contour lines are at 500 feet intervals, with intermediate contours where appropriate, along with numerous spot heights. Color tints on a hypsometric scale are also shown. The aeronautical information includes visual and radio aids to navigation, airports, airways, restricted areas, obstructions and other pertinent data. There is less detail in some areas due to insufficient information - these areas are labelled on the charts. These are large maps, with a typical size of 42 x 56 inches. Due to the size and color variation of the different print runs and the Conformal Conic Projection, these maps do not splice together well. World Aeronautical Charts are not recommended for use by pilots of low speed, low altitude aircraft. Color plots.
