We present further results of fully-sampled observations in the and rotational transitions of and , obtained with the SEST telescope at 43″ or 22″ resolution, toward the Small Magellanic Cloud. These observations concern six molecular clouds with a variety of physical conditions. Maps in the , and in some cases of lines are presented, as well as profiles of the four lines at the peak positions convolved to the same angular resolution of . The line ratio results are interpreted in Paper IV of this series (Lequeux et al. 1994).
