Which one of the following organisations is responsible for publishing topographical sheets

Question: Which one of the following organisations is responsible for publishing topographical sheets?
(1) Geological Survey of India (G.S.I.)
(2) National Atlas & Thematic Mapping Organisation (N.A.T.M.O.)
(3) Indian Meteorological Department (I.M.D.)
(4) Survey of India (S.O.I.)

Answer: (4) Survey of India (S.O.I.)
The Survey of India produces a rich “base” of map information through systematic topographical surveys
and the use of remote sensing images. Topographic maps provide the graphical portrayal of objects present
on the surface of the earth. These maps provide the preliminary information about a terrain and thus very
useful for engineering works.
