Mirčeta Vemić


During the last 60 years, the awareness and need for compilation of national atlas of Yugoslavia have been present among geographers, cartographers geodesists and numerous other scientists. Even some funds were available for this purpose, but there was no realization. The political determination and consent between the Yugoslav republics were lacking. Moreover, there were no necessary scientific and expert potentials and knowledge for accomplishment of such a cartographic project, which is one of the main premises of atlas compilation. The aim of this paper is to point to the main theoretical methodological and technological premises of national atlases compilation and to contribute to broader scientific and practical overview of the issues of possible project of compiling the National Atlas of Serbia.
