This document deals with the report on a mission to Somalia (23 June – 22 July 1983).Census field mapping activities were initiated in of the 80 districts. An important question-mark remains,, however, over the conditions of use of the base maps for the rural areas. The military's National Cartographic Directorate (NCD) have indicated that CSD are only allowed to borrow the maps, which essentially means that their usefulness is limited as they have to be returned in good condition. But updating maps in the field requires that they be drawn on, folded, cut up and joined together according to the chief compass limits of the administrative boundaries.
