ABSTRACT

The sheet names of national topographic maps serve as an index for the efficient management and search of map sheets as well as a georeferencing system to inform the location of the area that they cover. Although national topographic maps have been compiled over 100 years in Korea, there has been very little research on the sheet names of topographic maps. The purpose of this study is to establish a map sheet naming principle for national topographic maps and to examine existing map names on the basis of the proposed principle. The main results are as follows. First, practical ways to establish the principle for the map sheet naming are suggested in accordance to a discussion on the importance of the principle. Second, the principle for map sheet naming to prioritize the administrative unit names is developed based on existing map names. Third, an examination is undertaken for the names of existing 1:50,000 national topographic maps with respect to the proposed principle, suggesting that around 20% of the current map names need to be renamed. The proposed principle is expected to provide an effective foundation on which new maps are named and existing maps are renamed as well.
