AUSLIG, 1978. 1: 1 Million International Map of the World (IMW). Scale 1:1000000. International Map of the World (IMW)  . Australian Surveying and Land Information Group, Canberra.

Abstract

The IMW series is no longer maintained, and printed copies of this map are no longer available. The Australian portion of the series consists of 49 maps. They were produced to an international specification using the R502 series at 1:250,000 scale as source material. Production commenced in 1926 and was completed in 1978. The maps were revised from time to time and the last reprint was undertaken in 2003. Each standard map sheet covers 4 degrees of latitude by 6 degrees of longitude and was produced using a Lambert Conformal Conic projection with 2 standard parallels. The series has recently been superseded by the National Topographic Map Series at 1:1,000,000 scale.
