The Directorate of Overseas Surveys was founded by the Colonial Office in 1946, its brief was to provide national geodetic frameworks throughout the British Empire which would not only contribute to our knowledge of our planet but also allow for easy mapping, and to advance the usage of emergent technologies in mapping such as ariel photography. This is a social history of the department reflecting the desires of those who worked for the department to help others through means of mapping, and covers their operations in some 55 countries around the globe.
