State map at a scale of 1 : 5000

The State map at a scale of 1 : 5000 (SM 5) is the basic State map series of a large scale . It shows the entire territory of the Czech Republic in a contiguous layout of map sheets, where the territory of the Czech Republic is shown on 16 301 map sheets, each showing an area of 2x2,5 km . Dimensions and indexing of map sheets are derived from the State map series of the State map at 1:50 000 by its subdivision into 100 segments. Map layout of the State map at 1:50 000 is, as opposed to map layout of base map series at medium scales, parallel to axes of the S-JTSK coordinate system. (State map at 1:50 000 is not published, as opposed to the Base map of the Czech Republic).

The SM 5 contains planimetry, altimetry and lettering. It is the State map series of the largest scale which shows altimetry. Cadastre maps are their elementary planimetric graphic base , the Base map of the Czech Republic or ZABAGED® is the altimetry source. Cadastral maps and database of geographic names, Geonames, are the source of lettering.

Prior to 2001, the SM 5 has been compiled as analogue, the so-called State map 1:5 000-derived (SMO-5) for the entire territory of the Czech Republic. In 2001 to 2007, a vector form of the SM 5 for approx. 30 % of the area of the Czech Republic has been produced and supplemented by raster data created by scanning of printed map sources of the original SMO-5 for the remaining approx. 70% of the area of the Czech Republic . Between 2008-2009, an innovated version of the SM 5 has been prepared, including the processing technology change, with the goal of completing the vector coverage of the vector form of the SM 5 in the full extent of the area of the Czech Republic , following-up the progress of digitization of cadastre maps and secure their acceptable update procedures. Responsibility for the production and update of the SM 5 has been assumed by the Land Survey Office in 2008.
