What are Cartographic Models?

The BEV maintains the extensive information content of the national topographic survey, generalized and scale-dependent, in digital form as Cartographic Models (KM). These form the basis for the official cartographic products.

The Cartographic Models were initially created by digitizing the analogue national maps and hence were developed as raster or vector models.

Cartographic Models - Raster present the content of the map as square pixels. Cartographic Model - Vector store the individual objects as points, lines or areas and have additional value as they assign different attributes.

The nationwide coverage, uniformity and the guaranteed periodical up-dating have special advantages for the user.


Structure of the Cartographic Model - Raster

The Cartographic Model - Raster (KM-R) is structured by means of the following topics:

  • Situation
  • Contour Lines
  • Hydrography
  • Forest
  • Thematic Overprints
  • Hill Shading

These topics are subsequently divided into several layers related to different colors (single files).


Structure of the Cartographic Model - Vektor

Similar to the Cartographic Model - Raster the Cartographic Model - Vector
(KM-V) is divided into different object ranges:

  • Hydrography
  • Boundaries
  • Transportation
  • Soil Cover, Vegetation
  • Settlements, Individual Objects,
    Geographical Names
  • Contour Lines, Hill shading


Projection

The Cartographic Models are produced as follows:

Model Reference system Map projection
KM50-R ETRS89 UTM
KM50-V ETRS89 UTM
KM250-V ETRS89 UTM
KM250-R ETRS89 UTM
KM500-V ETRS89 Lambert
KM500-R ETRS89 Lambert
KM1000-V ETRS89 Lambert
KM2000-R ETRS89 Lambert

Heights refer to the vertical datum in Trieste/Italy.

The products KM50-R and KM50-V are also available in other coordinate systems:

Reference system Map projection Ellipsoid Geodetic datum Height system
MGI – Gauß-Krüger Gauß-Krüger Bessel 1841 MGI Adria Triest
MGI - Lambert Lambert Bessel 1841 MGI Adria Triest
ETRS89 - Lambert Lambert GRS80 ETRS89 Adria Triest

All other products of the Cartographic Models are available only in the predefined projections.


Updating

The Cartographic Models are updated in regular intervals (nationwide updating) and as required (continuous updating).

Nationwide Updating (FAKT)

Presentation of change information
This update aims at reviewing the whole content of the KM nationwide at regular intervals. The nationwide updating is based on the comparison of the existing KM with up-to-date areal images followed by revision in the field.

The nationwide updating is divided into units that correspond with the respective UTM sheets of the international reference system.

After every second nationwide updating of a map sheet (KM50) as well as after defined intervals (KM250, KM500) the respective Austrian Map is also published as a print version.

Continuous Updating (LAKT)

All especially important changes such as realignment of highways, roads and local bypasses, railways, big power plants, ski lifts and high-voltage lines, are implemented into the respective KM as soon as they have been built.

The updates do not necessarily go hand in hand with a new print version of the respective Austrian Map.

Notwithstanding the updating method the digital data will be available as soon as the building site is finished. They will be available as Cartographic Models at the BEV-Portal, in the AMap online and the AMap mobile.


Availability, Up-to-dateness

The data of the Cartographic Models are available nationwide. In addition we also provide data of the respective neighboring countries if they are available depending on the scale and the UTM-sheet.

KM-R:

The KM50-R is available in the resolution 254 dpi (100 l/cm), 508 dpi (200 l/cm) and 1016 dpi (400 l/cm).

Additionally one can choose between data formats:

  • TIFF (Geotiff) + World File (tfw)
  • JPEG + World File (jgw) only for color pictures
  • PNG + World File (pgw) only for color pictures

The other KM-R are available in 508 dpi TIFF.

KM-V:

The KM50-V is available as follows:

  • Shape with Attribute Data

Updating, map sheet and availability you will find at the BEV-Portal, see www.bev.gv.at.


Cartographic Model 1:50 000 - Raster
(KM50-R)


The Cartographic Model 1:50 000 - Raster (KM50-R) is the digital image of the Austrian territory and the
adjacent foreign territories in the scale 1:50 000.

It is divided as follows:

  • Situation
  • Contour Lines
  • Hydrography
  • Forest
  • Thematic Overprints
  • Hill shading

The KM50-R forms the basis for the national Austrian Map 1:50 000 (ÖK50) - in cooperation with the Ministry of Defence - as well as for the Austrian Map 1:25 000 (ÖK25V - enlargement of the ÖK50).

Updating

They are updated nationwide in regular intervals of 6 years (up to FAKT 2013) and 3 years (as of FAKT 2014) but also if required by important changes of the infrastructure (Continuous Updating). The 191 sheets are revised in accordance with the UTM sheet system (12` by 20`).

Sheets along the boundary with areas of foreign territory are completed if possible with the original data of the respective countries (e.g. Germany, Switzerland, and Czech Republic).

After every second nationwide updating (6 years) of a sheet area a new Austrian Map 1:50 000 is printed.

Delivery

The KM50-R is delivered:

Potential Applications

The data of the Cartographic Models are particularly suited as spatial reference basis and as basic information for the linkage of subject specific data as well as the intersection with thematic information and their analysis due to their high accuracy and the different scales available.

Cartographic Models are an essential basis for e.g.:

  • Geoinformation systems
  • Thematic representations
  • The updating of existing data
  • Start screens for WEB-Portals
  • The derivation of cartographic products
  • Printed maps

The data of the Cartographic Models are used in many fields such as:

  • Transportation
  • Agriculture and forestry
  • Environmental protection
  • Civil protection
  • Crises management
  • Regional management and planning
  • Water management
  • Energy supply
  • National defense
  • Geology
  • Tourism
