The modern map base of Moldova was established during the
years when the country formed part of the Soviet Union.
Topographic series conformed to the Russian 1942 standard, and were
published on the Gauss conformal transverse cylindrical
projection, Krassovsky ellipsoid.
Soviet military topographic mapping of Moldova is available at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (3 sheets, complete coverage, published 1981-1986);
1:500,000 (5 sheets, complete coverage, published 1978-1989); 1:200,000 (13 sheets, complete coverage, published 1977-1990); 1:100,000 (40 sheets, primarily complete coverage,
published 1952-1989); 1:50,000 (136 sheets, complete coverage, published 1976-1989) and city (1:10,000) topographic mapping of Beltsi, Bendery, Kishinev (Chisinau) and Tiraspol published
between 1974 and 1987. These products are available in print, digital raster and digital vector GIS formats from East View Geospatial.
There is very little information about mapping activity in
the country since the break-up of the Soviet Union, and as
one of the poorest states in eastern Europe little recent
mapping progress has been made. It is suggested that official
responsibility for mapping now lies with the Department
for Architecture, Urbanization and Control of
