Military Topographic and Cartographic System of the Republic of Croatia

Slavko Horvat, Željko Železnjak, Miljenko Lapaine


The Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Croatia started producing military topographic maps that differ from the inherited cartographic system in the projection, ellipsoid, and the manner of designating the grid, format, margin contents and scale system. Since the maps will be used for purposes other than the military ones, the paper looks back on essential characteristics in map production in the new accepted cartographic system.
