    The South African Department of Surveys and Mapping in Mowbray Cape Town. Their maps and CD's are cheaply available at production cost as all government information is freely available to the public as per the SA Constitution. I used to buy all my printed 1:250 000 and 1:50 000 maps by walking in. The were R10 a map a decade ago. They have CD's and also it seems downloads now.

    Here is their web page. Scroll down for contact details:

    More importantly, how do I convert a DVD set to readable DATA.

    I donít feel like going to the storage shed and digging up an old Laptop.

    I have an older set, free to a good home. Organise a courier, or I can ship it via PostNet (R120 I think)

    Contact NGI in Cape Town and you can courier them an external hdd. They'll copy everything you want onto it for free. They also have a portal where you can download data here: http://www.cdngiportal.co.za/cdngiportal/ . Both the raster and vector data is available.

    You can also view both the 1:50k and 250k maps online here: https://htonl.dev.openstreetmap.org/...-32.352/25.148
