From now on section Cartographic Heritage, where you can study unique works of cartographic art of ХІХ – ХХ centuries, which represent inland waterways of Ukraine, kept by the State Hydrographic Service of Ukraine (library of the SHSU Branch “Ukmorcartographia”).

Since the State Hydrographic Service of Ukraine provides a comprehensive hydrographic study of the seas along with the one of the inland waterways of Ukraine, and compiles modern high-tech nautical and river paper and electronic navigational charts, guides and sailing directions, in our opinion, many users should be interested in historical review of the cartographic works created in the recent past. In particular, we would like to draw attention to the materials of the hydrographic research and charting of the navigable rivers, which have been playing an important role in the transport connection of the country over the past three centuries.

The cartographic heritage owned by the State Hydrographic Service of Ukraine today is quite rich, thus it is impossible to post all the works on the site simultaneously. Materials will be periodically posted, updated and supplemented with new works. We are confident they will be of interest not only to specialists, but also to everyone who expresses interest to the national history of charting. More
