RKKA maps according old (Russian empire) nomenclature

RKKA topographers in years 1918-1944 successfully used inheritance of Russian empire - verst scale maps. Till II WW maps in scale 1:1050000 (25 verst per inch), 1:420000 (10 vesrt per inch), 1:210000 (5 verst per inch), 1:84000 (2 verst per inch), 1:42000 (1 verst per inch) were printed and used, also even maps in scale 1:126000 (3 verst per inch) were used. We didn't find RKKA maps in scale 1:21000, probably RKKA transformed scale 1:21000 into 1:25000 (content of maps was the same or changes were marginal). RKKA topographers republished verst scale maps in two ways: some maps were republished without changes, content of some maps were updated using available newest cartographic material. Titles (name) of RKKA maps in verst scale were as old maps from period of Russian Empire. More information about verst scale maps you can find in chapter of Russian empire maps.
