The First Military Survey is a unique collection of maps and descriptive information covering the whole former Austrian monarchy dating back to 1760s-1780s. The First Military Survey contains both cartographic and textual material. The description of landscape according to the individual sections of the 1:28 800 map was carried out simultaneously with the map. However, the texts are in a form of narration, they are in strictly structured every section into description of single municipalities, “Extract”, where the entire region is summarized by subjects, and index of places. The aim of this project is to turn this comprehensive topographic work into a digital library offering the user all the information contained in the original work in a comfort internet environment. The old maps are carefully georeferenced into a seamless map and the descriptive information is processed into a database. The resulting information system will be available in Czech and German as all the texts are being edited and carefully translated.

Keywords: Ist Military Survey, Bohemia, 18th century, scientific edition, on-line accesible information system
