It’s all but impossible to obtain topographical maps better than 1:500,000 for Turkey. I read somewhere it’s an agreement between Turkey and the US.
Do other countries respect this agreement, and how ? Why couldn’t Russia or Armenia sell Turkish maps ?
Or are the US the only country to have access to detailed maps of Turkey ?
What is this agreement worth now that we have access to detailed satellite views on NASA’s World Wind or Google Earth ?
Great, Bibliophage. I read about this agreement from the US Geological Survey at the time I was looking for such maps (about 10 years ago). I can’t cite because I got rid of the documents when I had access to Google Earth !
