  • Markings of national infrastructure
  • Markings of relief/heights
  • Markings of water stretches
  • National borders

General comment: Almost all Government bodies in Angola (Ministries) have a webpage). Those with unique or different layout provide more information than the rest. Most of those with the same layout (Similar to Government portal ) provide only descriptive information about the ministry.

The website of the Ministry of Planning and Territorial Development was not working at the time of the review. I found no indication that there would be another national agency dealing with the national maps.
