The scale of the main maps are 1:2 500 000, 1:3 500 000, 1: 5 000 000. As well, for the creation of climate maps and social infrastructure maps used scales 1:7 500 000 and 1:10 000 000. Basic atlas maps create in an equilateral conical projection.
The main aim of the national atlas is to present to the world peculiarity of the unique economic and spiritual potential of our state. The purpose of atlas defines its main content, structure and size.
