Modern topographic mapping of North Korea was established
after the end of the Korean War and following partition of the
peninsula. A new national triangulation was carried out
between 1958 and 1965 and the Gauss Conformal transverse
cylindrical projection, Krassovsky ellipsoid, was adopted by
the National Bureau of Geodesy and Cartography, which
assumed responsibility for official map publication. Mapping
was carried out with Russian aid by Glavnoe Upravlenie
Geodezii Kartografii (GUGK), now Federal'naya Sluzhba
Geodezii i Kartografii Rossii (Roskartografija), and specifications
followed Soviet practice, but with Cyrillic names
replaced by Korean characters. Basic scale mapping at
1:25,000 was carried out and completed for all of the country
with a 10 m contour interval relative to the Wonsum Gulf
datum. This map was compiled using photogrammetry, apart
from a few areas close to the border with the south. Smaller
scale series were derived from this survey and published at
1:50,000, 1:100,000, 1:200,000, 1:500,000 and 1:1,000,000
scales. A revision program was implemented using aerial
photography and satellite imagery.
Soviet military topographic mapping of North Korea is available at the following scales: 1:1,000,000 (4 sheets, complete coverage, published 1976-1987);
