The production of a national atlas is always an ambitious and difficult task, and the degree of success achieved is a measure of the closeness of co-operation between the various contributing individuals and organizations. The Atlas of Uganda, produced entirely in the short space of nine months in order to make the work available at the time of Uganda's independence in October, 1962, represents the fruitful co-operation of various government departments on the one hand, and on the other of the Lands and Surveys Department and the staff of the Department of Geography at Makerere University College. A very rewarding effort has been made to utilise the skill and experience of men whose services are no longer available in Uganda.
