The Mapping and Surveying Department, Geographic Information Division was gazetted on the 13th December 1975 with the Geographic Information Division responsible for Photogrammetric Services, Thematic, Aerial Photography, Topographic and Reprographic Services.

The Geographic Information Division supplied a range of photographic services to the Mapping and Surveying Department, other government departments and private firms. This included the production of blue, photostat, diazo and bromide prints, diapositives, and film negatives and positives. The Division also produced aerial photographs, air photo mosaics, flight diagrams, and still and cine photographs.

In January 1988 the Mapping and Surveying Department was renamed as the Geographic Information Department.
