Imperial Imprints of the Stable Cadastre
Scanning proceeds in the alphabetical order based on the Czech names of the cadastral areas. Every cadastral area of the stable cadastre is portrayed on several map sheets of non-identical dimensions. The borders and the original Czech name of the cadastral area of the stable cadastre are shown in the application overview map as the basic choice unit.
Maps newly scanned between 23th February 2010 - 22th MArch 2010 can be found in overview map (new acquisitions are marked in yellow colour). Scanning of all preserved Imperial Imprints of Bohemia if finished and maps of Moravia and Silesia are scanned now. We just prepare their publishing. The entire territory of the Czech Republic as could be found in old maps of the stable cadastre (approximately 50 000 map sheets) will have been made available by Land Survey Office by the end of the year 2008. In case some Imperial Imprints have not been preserved for certain areas, they will be replaced by equal maps e.g. original hand-drawn maps of the stable cadastre (presumably in the year 2009).
Detailed information about already accessible maps can be found in application GeoViewer Metadata via metadata service: 63811 - Imperial Imprints - Bohemia.

Prints of toposections and their derivates from the Third Military Mapping
The Collection is compiled of the sheets of toposections and their derivates at 1:25 000 from the Third Military Mapping. For choise of the territory we can use the sheet division of special topographic maps at 1:75 000 (Third Military Mapping) from 1916. Accessible (scanned) territories are coloured in green on the sheet division. Detailed information about already accessible maps can be found in application GeoViewer Metadata via metadata service 63813 - Topographic Maps.
