The maps have contours at 100m intervals, enhanced by altitude colouring and relief shading, with plenty of spot heights and names of various mountain chains, peaks, valleys, etc. Additional colouring and/or graphics indicate glaciers, cliffs, rock boulders, sands, ridges and dunes, mud and salt flats, different types of vegetation, etc. The maps show all the information expected of topographic mapping at this scale, including detailed presentation of local roads and tracks, railways, aerodromes, isolated settlements, national and internal administrative borders, etc. Latitude and longitude grid is drawn at 20' and 30' respectively. Map legend is in English.
The series was prepared in mid-2000s when all the place names have been transliterated from the original Russian mapping and given, where possible, modern local names for larger towns. Each map provides a guide to the transliteration, as well as English and German glossary for the abbreviations.ISBN: 9780906227855
