Map applications

The majority of CGS map applications intended for wider public as well as for geoscientists are run on a map server. The CGS map server is the basic entry point to all available digital geoscientific maps of the Czech Republic, which are being continuously updated.

This list also includes map applications that work with static data and are distributed mainly on CDs or DVDs. A thematic overview of the map server applications can be found in the so‑called guidepost of map applications.

Alphabetical list of applications is generated automatically from records in the CGS metadata catalogue.

Borehole surveys – map
