Paper topographic maps to continue

A while ago I forwarded an email about the Federal Ministry of Natural Resources plan to discontinue the printing of paper topographic maps and switch to producing online maps only. As an update: on October 12, 2006, the Minister of Natural Resources stated that they have reversed this decision in response to a large amount of public protest: paper maps will continue to be produced.
