Africa Map Dakar
This map is part of a multi-map set of Senegal at the scale of 1:125,000. It is a topographic map showing physical relief by contour lines, which are lines that connect equal points of elevation. Topographic maps are the most produced type of map, and are available at different scales and dates. The Map & Imagery Library has an extensive collection of regional and detailed topographic maps of countries in Africa. This particular map is designated as AMS Series G621, and was published in 1942. An older topographic map was chosen as it showed Goree Island in more detail than our most current series.
