Decolonization of Africa began in the 1950s, and by 1960s most African countries gained independence.

Decolonization accelerated confrontation of the two "superpowers" - the USSR and the USA, as each side sought to strengthen its camp by attracting peoples of the periphery.

The Soviet Union had a great influence on the decolonization of Africa. Therewith were created more than 15 000 maps of Africa - large-scale and small-scale. Maps of Africa, issued by the USSR, were very accurate, so they still remain valuable cartographic source for many areas of Africa.

In the 70 years US military also address the issue of mapping Africa by creation of large-scale topographic maps.
