The geological maps and text explanatory notes thereto represent the content and expertly extensive works of monograph nature, which stand outside the interest of the private sector. Published geological maps never belong to the commercial sphere of the geological works. They do not constitute a direct financial profit. Their importance is comprehensive with the impact upon the development of society as a whole and the National Economic Strategy.
Our overview deals with not only the maps published by our Geological Institute. Therein are also the geological maps of the territory of Slovakia in the context of that-time Czechoslovakia, compiled in cooperation with our employees or on the basis of their mapping documents during the period of the first decades since the inception of the Institute.
At the same time we would like to remind you that the overview is dedicated only to the published geological, tectonic and Quaternary geology maps and they form the basis of the knowledge of the geological setting of the territory of the State. A number of maps from other geological disciplines is derived from them that complement and enrich the ŠGÚDŠ publishing activity
(see Map Server on www.geology.sk), for example, the hydrogeological, engineering geological, hydrogeochemical, geochemical, geophysical ones, the maps of raw mineral deposits, geological-educational maps, etc.
