    "The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has used TNTmips to prepare a series of 32 topographic maps of Afghanistan at a scale of 1:250,000, in cooperation with the Afghan Geological Survey and Afghanistan Geodesy and Cartography Head Office. These maps provide complete coverage of the country and are published electronically in the USGS Open File Report series as PDF map files that can be printed to scale."

    Information sheet (.pdf document) - http://www.microimages.com/documenta...AfghanTopo.pdf
    Download site - USGS Online Publications Directory

    University of Texas at Austin Map collection, Afghanistan maps - Afghanistan Maps - Perry-Castaeda Map Collection - UT Library Online

    Afghanistan topo maps overlaid onto satellite imagery can be downloaded at http://www.aims.org.af/sroots.aspx?seckeys=126

    And of course, your own S-2 (intelligence) officer is probably your best source for imagery.

    1:250000 is not very detailed, at least 1:25000. The s2 do not think it has the map for Garmin, However he does not give it to everyone, and not without the permissions. Sorry for my english

    Don't worry about your English - it is far better than my Italian! I agree that for an infantryman operating on the ground, 1:250,000 is really only beneficial if you're doing long range map recon or plotting artillery targets. If your command has the data and will not give it to you, then that's that. However, it should be a simple enough to acquire a paper map and scan it into a format you can use electronically.

    Alternately, a Google search for 'Garmin Map Afghanistan' reveals the following sites -

    Afghanistan Garmin Compatible Maps - GPSFileDepot - Afghanistan Garmin Compatible Maps
    - This is the link being recommended by those that have used GPS in-country

    Free GPS Maps - An Up to Date List

    Free Geography Tools

    Search free Garmin maps by location

    Search free Garmin maps by location

    That should get you more information than you were looking for. I do note that any maps with friendly positions included are classified ISAF SECRET - so there is no way you will be able to get those for a non-military GPS unit.

    Good luck!

    I worked with the Italians in Herat and you will get the maps that you want when you get there

    I have this map, the roads are better than the Global Maps Afghanistan package for the Herat area if that's what you wanted to know.
