The quarter of significant and japanese Europe has a wealthy and lengthy historical past in cart- raphy. Many very important advancements in mapping and cartography were proposed and played by way of cartographers and researchers of that sector. The lengthy and impressive heritage has ended in a full of life and brilliant presence. Now modern equipment for depicting the earth and its cultural and average attributes are used. This ebook specializes in the modern actions in all significant nation-states of cartography in primary and jap Europe. It covers facets of theoretical, topographical, thematic and multimedia cartography, which were provided on the frst Symposium on Cartography for imperative and jap Europe, which came about from February sixteenth to seventeenth, 2009 in Vienna, Austria and used to be equipped by means of the overseas Cartographic organization (ICA) and the Vienna collage of expertise. The symposium’s target was once to compile cartographers, GI scientists and people operating in comparable disciplines from CEE with the aim of providing a platform for dialogue and trade and stimulation of joined initiatives. approximately a hundred thirty scientists from 19 nations the invitation and visited Vienna, Austria. a variety of absolutely reviewed contributions is edited during this publication and is intended as a replicate of the big variety of actions within the realm of cartography during this zone. The cutting edge and modern personality of those subject matters has result in a good number of interdis- plinary contributions. subject matters disguise an immense diversity with heterogenous relati- ships to the most ebook issues.

Additionally other software for preparing the data was used. Mainly three persons are involved in ERM production. One is the national coordinator form The Surveying and Mapping Authority of the Republic of Slovenia, which is the ERM contractor. ERM production was outsourced to the Geodetic Institute of Slovenia where two persons (1 technician, 1 expert) share the work. 3 Production Workflow After collecting all the source data, it is generalized according to the ERM specifications and some basic topology editing is done.

3 Production Workflow In principle the ERM dataset is automatically derived from KM250, which is regularly updated. For this purpose the structure of KM250 was adapted to the ERM specifications. If there are any changes in the ERM specifications corresponding adjustments in KM250 are always implemented. As a result KM250 contains some features and even feature classes that are only used for the ERM delivery. Generating the ERM dataset is actually a transformation from the edited national database KM250 done with FME.

3 Production Workflow After collecting all the source data, it is generalized according to the ERM specifications and some basic topology editing is done. In the next step the data is transformed from national coordinate system to reference coordinate system of ERM. Then additional attributes are filled in and geometry is edited regarding the topology constraints. 6. Two country specific advantages of the ERM production are worth mentioning. First, the main source, the National General Map of the Republic of Slovenia at scale 1:250 000, was generated in vector format completely new in 2005 (updated in 2008) and was at the same time harmonized with ERM specifications.
