    There is a great 1970s Russian map of Wellington NZ.

Someone in the Soviet Embassy really really liked maps and spent a lot of time doing it, and updating it.

    OTOH, I did read a story about Western made maps of Moscow being the best ones. That because the Russian messed with their official maps to avoid giving away intelligence (www.nytimes.com/1988/09/03/world/soviet-aide-admits-maps-were-faked-for-50-years.html). IIRC, it ended being so bad that diplomats in Moscow needed to use the maps provided by their own intelligence agencies (mainly the CIA) to do their routine functions, and the maps being leaked to everyone (including Russians with the right connections!) who needed to travel through Moscow.
