The Plans of Map Sheets ZTM/ETRS89 is based on the recommendations of inspire legislation and use the definition of the territory by geographical coordinates. The underlying data of the entire set of ZTM Both forms of ZTM Another output provided is the georeferentiated files with a composite raster image of the map content, which will also be used in the Map Services of the ČÚZK Geoportal. The third variant of providing ZTM the Czech Republic is Vector Data of the Cartographic Models of ZTM/S-JTSK in DGN and SHP format. All this data is provided as open data with CC by 4.0 . The digital form of basic topographic maps of medium scale is used in geographical information systems, map portals and web applications in the role of underlying and review maps thanks to uniform processing for the whole territory of the Czech Republic and data availability.
Map of the Czech Republic at the scale of 1:500 000 is a general geographic map of small scale . It shows the entire territory of the Czech Republic on a single map sheet, processed using digital technology. It is used, among others, as a navigation layer in Geoportal CUZK and other departmental web applications.
