The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia declared its
independence in 1992. Before the break-up of Yugoslavia,
official mapping was centralized at Belgrade. Macedonia is
the most poorly resourced of the former Yugoslav republics,
and although a new National Geodesy Office has been
established, Republika Geodetska Uprava, at Skopje, the
current topographic maps, at scales of 1:25,000, 1:50,000,
1:100,000, 1:200,000, 1:500,000 and 1:1,000,000 remain
those produced at Belgrade and are unrevised. Most current
effort is in cadastral mapping, in an attempt to keep pace
with the privatization of land following independence.
Soviet military topographic mapping of Macedonia exists at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (1 sheet, complete coverage, published in 1990);
1:500,000 (4 sheets, complete coverage, published 1982-1989); 1:200,000 (10 sheets, complete coverage, published 1976-1988); 1:100,000 (28 sheets, complete coverage,
published 1976-1988); 1:50,000 (88 sheets, complete coverage, published 1974-1988) and a city (1:10,000) topographic map of Skopje published in 1974. These products are
available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
