Poland Geography Map

Cities of Poland

Digital Map of Poland is a set of cartographic layers that serve for map editing. The spatial coverage is the whole area of Poland and adjacent parts of the neighbouring countries, at a nominal scale 1:200, 000. The accuracy is suitable for paper maps at the same scale, whereas for the purposes of computer use a scale 1:100, 000 can be obtained.

All the data is stored in geographic coordinates based on the WGS-84 ellipsoid. The coverage is continuous, allowing for presentation of the whole country or its parts in any given projection. Also, as far as possible, single map objects are continuous, that is not divided into fragments or “tiles”, with the exception of huge objects in landcover and contourlines layers.

The quality of our data has been thoroughly verified in the course of big edition map production, involving editorial work, revisors and readers' contributions.

Selected information about layers

Settlement points are distinguished, identified and named in accordance with the TERYT system, and thus in harmony with the official geographical names.

Rivercourses are identified with hierarchical code, describing location in drainage system. Four additional rivercourse layers exist to improve graphical effect with graduations.

Roads include all sealed and most of unsealed roads significant for transportation network. Segments are described with official national number and categorized into 14 classes. Division into segments not necessarily is concurrent with intersections.

Hipsometry layer consists of 58 classes of closed contour areas (suitable for colour fill). Intervals are 20m up to 400, 40 m up to 800, 50m up to 1600, 100m up to 2600. Nominal scale is appx. 1:300-400.000.

Landmark/Sightseeing layer includes 98 categories of objects significant for cultural heritage and tourism. Also included are border crossings, petrol stations (now outdated) and traffic hazard points.
