Árpád Papp-Váry (Editor-in-chief) 1999. Atlas of Hungary. Cartographia, Budapest.

1999

This atlas (23.3 x 32.9 cm in size) is much easier to handle than were the former one-volume national atlases. The aim of the publisher was to present, mainly for people involved in higher education, the basic social and economic changes that took place in Hungary after 1989. The atlas has 132 numbered pages, with 106.5 pages of maps and 24.5 pages for an index and a list of settlements. Owing to changes in function and the requirements of the targeted users, the structure of the map pages differed significantly from the 1989 edition of the national atlas. The ratio of map themes became more balanced: the ratio of economic maps fell from 49% to 23%, while the ratio of introductory general geographic and political-administrative maps increased from 10% to 26%. The scale of most maps was 1:2.5 million. The atlas contained 21 maps of the Carpathian Basin (including 16 physical geographical maps), whereas only three maps had shown this broader area in the 1989 edition of the national atlas. This fact clearly reflected a major change in attitude.
