Abstract:

The 1:500 000 Geomorphological Map of Poland, the purpose of whichis to reconstruct the relief evolution in general by taking morphostructuresas well as genetic relief types fully into account, synthesizes up-todatework on the relief of Poland. An additional aim of publishing thismap by the Institute of Geography and Spatial Organization, Polish Academyof Sciences, was to put forward a geomorphological division of thecountry. The map also places in focus the lacunae of geomorphologicalresearch which need further detailed studies. This map was constructedin the Cracow Department of Geomorphology and Hydrology of Mountainsand Uplands, acting in co-operation with expersts from all major scientificcentres in Poland (cf. legend for the map). The map was edited by Prof.L. Starkel, with the assistance of Dr. S. Gilewska and Mrs. M. Klimkowawho also has handdrawn all sheets. Dr. K. Trafas and his collaborators ofthe Polish Society of Earth Sciences have taken part in the preparation ofthe final cartographic edition of the map which was printed at the WojskoweZakłady Kartograficzne, Warsaw. Map data relate to 1968.

Problem of basic unit areas in studies of Polish geographers and cartographers

Further information

Abstract:

Polish geographers and cartographers have recently been payingincreasing attention to the problem of basic unit area, particularly thepossibility of introducing a uniform division of the country into geometricalunits as a basis for data compilation and processing for cartographicand other purposes. This problem was often on the agenda of recentcartographic conferences, seminars, meetings of the Cartographical Commissionof the Polish Geographical Society, the Committee on GeneralCartography, and various other informal meetings of cartographers. Theneed to introduce such a division has also been voiced by some non-geographers:statisticians, economists, botanists and others. This increasinginterest in the problems of unit areas is a good opportunity to review theto-date achievements and experiences of geopraphy and cartography inthis field of research. Poles have made a valuable contribution to thesestudies. Although some of their studies are quite well known and fullydeserve to be labelled as pioneering, many others have been forgotten orare familiar only to a small group of specialists. As they are varied,numerous, and in many cases up-to-date, they deserve at least a briefdescription.
