Where to get Maps in Nigeria?


In the digital age, maps play a crucial role in our daily lives, assisting us in navigating unfamiliar territories, planning routes, and making informed decisions. If you’re in Nigeria and in need of accurate and up-to-date maps, look no further than Geoinfotech. In this blog post, we will delve into the features and services offered by Geoinfotech, highlighting why it stands out as the ideal destination for obtaining maps in Nigeria.


 Topographic maps

Topographic maps are invaluable tools that provide detailed information about the physical features and terrain of a particular area. In Nigeria, these maps play a crucial role in various sectors such as urban planning, infrastructure development, natural resource management, and outdoor activities.

Topographic maps are designed to represent the three-dimensional features of the Earth’s surface in a two-dimensional format. They utilize contour lines, symbols, and colors to depict natural and man-made features such as mountains, valleys, rivers, forests, roads, and settlements. These maps provide essential elevation information, enabling users to visualize and analyze the physical characteristics of an area.

Political maps

Political maps are essential tools for comprehending the administrative divisions and boundaries within a country. In Nigeria, a diverse nation with multiple states and local government areas, political maps play a crucial role in understanding the country’s governance structure.

Political maps provide a visual representation of the political divisions within a country, including states, regions, districts, and local government areas. These maps use colors, borders, and labels to depict administrative boundaries and the placement of cities and towns. By showcasing the distribution of political units, political maps offer a clear understanding of the organization of governmental authority.


Other Thematic Maps

Thematic maps go beyond the depiction of physical boundaries and provide a deeper understanding of specific topics or themes. In Nigeria, these maps play a vital role in visualizing and analyzing various socio-economic, demographic, and environmental aspects of the country.

Thematic maps focus on representing specific themes or subjects within a geographic context. Unlike political or topographic maps, which primarily show boundaries and physical features, thematic maps utilize colors, symbols, and patterns to illustrate data related to a particular theme. These maps enable users to analyze spatial patterns, relationships, and distributions of various phenomena in Nigeria.

Map Design company in Lagos, Abuja Nigeria

Geoinfotech is a map design company in Lagos, Abuja, Nigeria. With highly skilled cartographers and Map analysts who carefully create maps from the various spheres of inspired maps across Nigeria.

What is a Map Design:

An aggregate of all the thought processes that cartographers go through during the abstraction phase of the cartographic process is referred to as a Map Design.

It is important to note as a cartographer that including the right design principles leads to a constructive map layout.

At Geoinfotech we make sure this layout is well detailed in a way that our drone pilot operators gain first-hand information about changes in zone boundaries

As you zoom in on the constructive software map provided at Geoinfotech, you could see more detail is added to the map to show the locations of individual power stations. Different map symbols are used to indicate the different types of power plants (nuclear, oil, coal, gas, wind, solar, etc.).

A great Map Design should include:

  1. A good display with waterproof and tear-resistant material
  2. A good map should also possess popping matching colors
  3. It should portray recreational features, roads, and trails for a broad audience
  4. Clearly labeled topographic features to discern elevation contours

Elements of a Great Map Design

  1. Title
  2. Scale Indicator
  3. Orientation
  4. Border
  5. Legend
  6. Map Credit
  7. Locator Map
  8. Top-Notch Graphical design
  9. Visual Hierarchy
  10. And most importantly its purpose

How Geoinfotech relates cartography in the GIS environment

Over the years, Geoinfotech relates cartography in the GIS environment helping us in mapping the world in a conformal projection.

Cartography as a science was not established until the German geographer Max Eckert (1868–1938) published his two volumes on “map science” that marked the birth of cartography as an independent discipline and science (Eckert 1921, 1925).

As a young science and confronted with major technological developments in the late 20th-century cartography underwent several crises as to what exactly is cartography and how it relates to other spatial sciences, in particular to geographic information systems

what then does cartography entailWhat then does cartography entail;

Cartography is the science and technique of producing maps and map-related products. These products are digital or analog models of (a virtual) reality.

Why do GIS and cartography complement each other?

Geographic information systems (GIS), the ultimate culmination of cartography and modern technology, allow us to map our world like never before: from rendering 3D oceanic base maps to finding the nearest dry cleaner.

Cartography and geographic information systems both influence each other, but mapping may get the best of the relation. GIS technology promises to transform cartography by changing what gets mapped, what form maps take, who makes and uses maps, and how maps are used. We can also expect better tailoring of maps to user needs and characteristics. In the process, all involved will have to pay closer attention to the nature of cartographic representation.

what then does cartography entail

At Geoinfotech relating cartography and GIS can be best visualized from a practical point of view. One of the modes of GIS is the cartographic one, but this is mostly given in the context of applications and not necessarily as an objective reality. Computer-Assisted Mapping (CAM) has a specific production objective but lacks the analytical capacities of a GIS. On its part, GIS includes cartographic capacities, which being important have not the same weight as the analytical. However, GIS depends basically on cartography for data capture, which in many cases has to be converted to a digital format, structured and put into a database, processed as required, and finally given some sort of output.

However, neither of them is to be ignored in its importance for the visualization of spatial objects and phenomena in this recent times. In this article, Geoinfotech further shows the advantages and disadvantages of cartography using GIS.

Advantage of cartography using GIS

  • Create maps semi-automatically

  • Manage layers

  • Symbolize data

  • Label maps with text and graphics automatically

  • Layout and print maps

  • Work with styles and symbols

  • Look at data with graphs

  • Create reports

  • Query maps


The disadvantage of cartography using GIS

  • Classification: The classification tools included in the most current GIS package allow quick and easy classing schemes. This can lead to inappropriate choices because no significant experimentation is needed. Another factor to consider is the number of classes: the default number of classes in the GIS package is frequently too high: nine or ten, whereas five or six classes, are enough.

  • Text Placement: Labelling points, lines and polygons automatically is often imprecise or cartographically false. Overposting (labeling for one feature placed on top of labeling for another feature), bad polygon labeling (on left/center/right) are other placement, are classic errors.

  • Colour schemes: Often the default color schemes are qualitative, this can be a real problem for

choropleth mapping (which uses quantitative data).
