Very interesting narrative about the possible sources for the creation of Soviet Topographic maps.

Article #2 is especially informative. :ph34r:

Article #2: http://jomidav.aldav...s/UncleJoe2.pdf


Has anyone used these maps for any cartographic endeavor?

Here is a paper I wrote on various free and low cost sat and terrain data sources. I look at Russian data from Eastview in a section. Russian data is one of my primary data sources when I work on Asian maps. Plus an extensive bibliography....great reading for the coming holidays. :P

Martin,

I read your article during the weekend. It is very concise and well written.
A couple of questions:

1) Could you compare the “buzz” filter that you use for simplifying land cover versus other more common filters like “Gaussian”?

2)What topographic maps did you use as reference for Perú?

1. Buzz simplifier is more comparable to some of the art filters like posterize and not at all like a Gaussian filter. Buzz Pho2pix

2. Peruvian DEMs were generated from 1:25,000 and 1:100,000 topo maps (25m and 50m resolution respectively). 100k maps are produced by the IGN and 25k by PETT.
