Geological maps and text explanatory notes represent the content and expertly extensive works of monograph nature; they are intended to serve professional and the lay public. They are an essential underlying layer for further applications. The creation of a geological map of a region is a multi-year process, and coverage of the Slovak Republic territory by geological maps has taken several decades. This naturally led to the fact that some interpretations of the geological setting have advanced along with the change of the wider concepts of geological structures of the Western Carpathians. The new concepts have been supported also by updated research methodologies, which led to the more accurate insight in the age and tectonic affiliation of rock complexes. The process is ongoing and therefore new maps are still being compiled and innovated.

The geological map is a two-dimensional depiction of the territory geological setting, but experienced geologist knows to decipher from it even a third dimension, as well as in-depth details of the fourth dimension – a geologic timeline.

Since 2005, when  Digital geological map of SR at scale 1: 50 000 was presented to the public, the SGIDS has issued a number of new regional map works, and this digital map has been enriched on them. On the other hand, there are also newer map works at hand, that are based on a different concept, as the regional geological maps edition, and for those we have created a special display within the map server. Among them is the Map of Spiš-Gemer Ore Mts. at scale1:50 000. So, professionally oriented user may choose between different approaches to the compilation of a geological map.
