Belarus and Russia to update topographic maps


Russia: The State Property Committee of Belarus (Goskomimushchestvo) and the Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre, and Cartography of Russia (Rosreyestr) have plans to update topographic maps of the Belarusian-Russian border regions.

The two agencies have prepared a joint address to the Permanent Committee of the Union State concerning financial support to update the maps of the 1:50,000 and 1:100,000 scales of the border territories between Belarus and Russia. After the status of works has been decided the issue will be introduced to a session of the Council of Ministers of the Union State.

The specialists say that every joint session of Goskomimushchestvo and Rosreyestr is important for increasing the efficiency of works carried out in geodesy, cartography, geo-information technologies, Earth remote sensing, land inventory and state registration of immovable property, rights to own it and making transactions that involve such property. Such sessions set guidelines to cooperation in the forthcoming years.
