Russia: GfK GeoMarketing recently released an updated and expanded digital map edition for Russia. A particular highlight is the unprecedented map of the country’s two-digit postcodes. The new 2008 digital Russia Map Edition contains a total of 22 postcode, administrative and topographic maps, including, for the first time, a map of the country’s two-digit postcodes.
The available administrative maps are subdivided into maps of Russia’s seven federal districts, 80 administrative regions and 2,532 districts. The highlight of the topographic maps is the depiction of more than 108,000 cities that gives users a detailed overview of their geographic distribution. The cities have been subdivided into six categories according to number of inhabitants. The layers depicting the country’s administrative regions and cities include both Cyrillic and international place-name attributions.
“This new map edition is a response to the significant demand for maps and data for Russia,” comments Doris Hardt-Beischl, director of sales at GfK GeoMarketing. “In spite or even because of the economic crisis, there is an immense need for reliable cartographic information on dynamic markets like Russia.”
The Russia Map Edition is one among a series of GfK GeoMarketing’s comprehensive and newly updated map editions for Asian countries. From now until early summer 2009, GfK GeoMarketing will be releasing updated postcode, administrative and topographic maps for all Asian countries.
