The mapping of Armenia still follows standards established
when the country was one of the Republics of the Soviet
Union. These series are on the Gauss conformal
transverse cylindrical projection, Krassovsky ellipsoid.
After independence the Institut Geodezii i Kartografii pri
Pravitel'stve Respubliki Armenii (IGKA) in the Ministry of
Urban Development was established in Yerevan as the national
mapping agency. Small scale mapping of Armenia has been
revised extensively and an active publishing program exists as of 2015. The Department of Geodesy and
Cartography in the same Ministry announced a program
of digital conversion with plans to capture series at 1:50,000;
1:200,000; 1:500,000 and 1:1,000,000 scales in 1998-1999. In the 2010-2015 period, entirely new topographic map series
have been surveyed and published at the 1:25,000 and 1:10,000 scales.
Soviet military topographic mapping of Armenia is available at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (2 sheets, complete coverage, published 1985-1990);
1:500,000 (4 sheets, complete coverage, published 1979-1984); 1:200,000 (11 sheets, complete coverage, published 1976-1985); 1:100,000 (34 sheets, complete coverage,
published 1974-1978); 1:50,000 (106 sheets, complete coverage, published 1973-1990) and city (1:10,000 to 1:25,000) topographic mapping of Gyumri, Kirovakan and Yerevan
published in 1983. These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
