ABSTRACT
The solution of cartographic representation of boundaries was one of the challenging tasks during creation of new Academic Atlas of the Czech History. Main issue for historical thematic mapping is to achieve best possible boundary representation considering combination of historical and present information. Another point to take into account is visualization of other map elements and focus of a map (such as political map, physical-geographical map). The article summarizes ways of cartographic representation of boundaries mainly in standard atlases (like school atlases or atlases for the general public) but in historical atlases as well and initial demands of historians to thematic maps. These two basic requests led to the design of map symbols and guidelines for their using during the work on the Academic Atlas of the Czech History. The topic is supplemented with other issues which are important to take into account – like an accuracy of original sources, grade of map generalization and so on.

Keywords: boundary, historical boundary, administrative boundary, cartographic representation of boundaries, Academic Atlas of the Czech History
