Congo, D.R. Congo, and Central African Republic Travel Map. 1:2,000,000. ITMB, 2012. It covers all of the Democratic Republic of Congo (the former Congo-Kinshasa, or Zaire), all of the People's Republic of the Congo (known as Congo-Brazzaville or French Congo), and the Central African Republic to the north. This is in reality a map of the vast rain forest known as the Congo River Basin.
A word of warning: the road network in both Congos is primitive - that means largely non-existent or in such poor condition as to wreck army trucks. ITMB shows the roads, and tried to classify them by quality, but this is a 'work in progress' and I hope that this map will create sufficient feedback to improve this aspect of the map.

Although it is out of date and is not indexed, it is noteworthy for its clarity (no relief shading) and somewhat greater level of detail compared to other existing products, eg. inclusion of more smaller settlements, more extensive breakdown of divisions, electricity power lines, etc.
Latitude and longitude lines are at 1° intervals. The area beyond the country's border is left blank. Includes three inset maps showing the vegetation distribution (forest & savannah), the general relief (altitude tinting) and main administrative divisions.

D.R. Congo 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 D.R. Congo government. 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.
NOTE: These maps have been restricted by the US military. We cannot obtain new stock after we sell our current inventory.
