Imperial Grand Survey
The Survey Office of the Imperial Interstellar Scout Service is known commonly, and even internally, as the IGS; the Imperial Grand Survey. It has responsibility for mapping and exploration within Imperial borders.
The IGS is responsible, in addition to survey duties, for publishing its cartography, establishing traffic control procedures, and for enforcement of space vessel safety standards. The function of exploring unknown areas accounts for only a small percentage of IGS manpower and funds.
The Outrim Void is technically within the Imperial borders, so exploration and survey here are the responsibility of the IGS rather than its rival Exploration Office . Ref: ADV-4, 1107
