Mapping in Kyrgyzstan still follows patterns established in
the Soviet era. The 1942 specification is used for topographic
series, with maps based on the Gauss conformal transverse
cylindrical projection, Krassovsky ellipsoid.
Soviet military topographic mapping of Kyrgyzstan is available at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (5 sheets, complete coverage, published 1969-1990);
1:500,000 (10 sheets, complete coverage, published 1966-1989); 1:200,000 (54 sheets, complete coverage, published 1964-1992); 1:100,000 (173 sheets, complete coverage,
published 1961-1991); 1:50,000 (573 sheets, complete coverage, published 1963-1992) and city (1:10,000) topographic mapping of Dzhambul (Taraz), Frunze (Bishkek),
Osh and Przhevalski (Karakol) published between 1982 and 1987. These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats
from East View Geospatial.
Following independence a new national mapping agency was
founded in Bishkek in 1992, the State Agency for Geodesy and Cartography
(Kyrgyzgeodezija), building upon the former
Soviet republican mapping organization first established in
is responsible for official topographic and geodetic survey, as
well as being responsible for cadastral registration, for inventories
of natural resources and for standardization of place
