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.
