    Index sheets and map index system used is same as the official new Government of Myanmar 1:50,000 
    topographic series. Please note this Atlas does not use in any way any GIS or imagery data
    from official Government of Myanmar sources. Please also note there are some restrictions still in
    place regarding the distribution of topographic maps within Myanmar. For example, the
    display of contours on a topographic map may require special permission. To respect this
    requirement this atlas avoids the use if contours but instead makes use of hill shading.

    Map series will be updated continuously as new data becomes available.
