ABSTRACT

Creating a digital atlas is more than creating a series of maps. It means leveraging good cartographic design, using accurate data and providing a virtual place where all these maps will reside. Using latest GIS software and high detailed and accurate data the project is set to create the first Romanian Digital Atlas – a collections of map layouts that can be easily used in both educational purposes and local administration government. As Romania is divided, from administrative point of view, in 42 counties, 42 maps were created as cartographic products. The map layout was also consolidated for entire Romania and based on the map document an Internet Map Service was published to be used in the digital atlas web mapping application. This is the first attempt to create such an atlas, a digital atlas for Romania, where all the maps are freely available for download and use.
