Abstract: The Map of the Czech Republic 1: 500,000 is provided as a colour raster file with resolution either 508 or 300 DPI. It is supplied with georeferencing files for S-JTSK and WGS84/UTM datums. It contains following features: boundaries, forests, planimetry, road fills, map lettering, hydrography, railways and hill shading.
Purpose: MČR 500 is conceived as an overview general geographic map. It displays the whole territory of the Czech Republic in one map sheet. It is exploited, among others, as a navigation layer in web map applications.

Other information: EPSG code 5514 S-JTSK / Krovak East North is an equivalent to the existing ESRI code 102067. The projection keeps the mathematic so called "east-north" orientation of coordinate axis where the X axis has positive values eastwards and Y axis northwards. This projection is suitable for exploitation in GIS applications. The projection is related to the Greenwich Prime Meridian (contrary to the EPSG 5221 S-JTSK (Ferro) / Krovak East North where the Prime Meridian is Ferro).
