Stanislav Frangeš, Aleksandar Tonšetić, Robert Paj


In the Republic of Croatia, new topographic maps are just being produced, primarily at the scale of 1:25 000. The Military Topographic Map is being made for the Ministry of Defence according to the existing manual "Topographic symbols" from 1993. For civil needs, the Topographic Map is made at the scale of 1:25 000 according to the new, officially not yet adopted collection of symbols "Map Key" from 1998. The paper points out the importance of changing the map graphics of topographic maps according to the modern communication and visualisation of space.
