Chinese Map Publishing House (中华地图学社; 1975 - present) is an office within China's National Surveying Bureau (国家测绘局) tasked with publishing survey maps. The maps it produces are highly detailed and potentially sensitive, usually intended for use by the party and government rather than the general public, and as a result many of its maps are designated as restricted, for internal use only (内部). However, some of its works are intended for a wider audience, such as the authoritative, eight-volume Historical Atlas of China (中国历史地图集), published between 1982 and 1988. In recent years, they have even published cartoonish pictorial maps intended for tourists.
