United Nations Editorial Manual Online



Author departments should consult the Geospatial Information Section (formerly the Cartographic Section) of the Department of Field Support before preparing maps for publication. All cartographic materials must be reviewed by the Section before they are submitted for processing. The Section will provide advice on accuracy, copyright permission or notice, and disclaimers regarding political boundaries or the status of areas. For detailed guidelines on the publication of maps, see ST/AI/189/Add.25/Rev.1.

Maps and geographical information are available on the website of the Geospatial Information Section (www.un.org/Depts/Cartographic/english/htmain.htm).
