GEODESY AND CARTOGRAPHY is a semiannually journal publishing peer-reviewed articles with original solutions of theoretical, experimental or applicable problems in the field of geodesy, surveying engineering, cartography, photogrammetry and related disciplines. Besides original research papers, the journal includes commissioned review papers on topical subjects and special issues arising from chosen scientific symposia or workshops. Legal requirements
The author(s) guarantee(s) that the manuscript will not be published elsewhere in any language without the consent of the copyright owners, that the rights of the third parties will not be violated, and that the publisher will not held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.

Articles should be submitted on line www.editorialsystem.com/geocart/
In case the manuscript has more than one author its submission should include the list specifying contribution of each author to the manuscript with indicating who is the author of the concept, assumptions, research methodology, data processing.

Use the template to format your paper. Layout guidelines:
- use a normal, plain Times Roman font for text, italics for textual emphasis, bold for mathematical vectors,
- use the table functions of your word processing program, not spreadsheets, to make tables,
- use the equation editor of your word processing program for equations,
- place all figures with figure legends and tables with table legends in the manuscript,
- submit also all figures as separate files.Data format:
Save your manuscript in RTF or DOC Microsoft Word for Windows format.Illustrations:
Figures should be provided in the vector graphics or JPG or TIF (specifically for halftone illustrations) formats will be accepted. The filename should include the figure number. Figure legends should be included in the text
and not in the figure file. Scanned line drawings should be digitised with a minimum resolution of 800 dpi relative to the final figure size. For digital halftones, 300 dpi is usually sufficient. Non-standard fonts used in the vector graphics must be included. Please do not draw with hairlines. The minimum line width is 0.2 mm (0.567 pt) relative to the final size.Manuscript preparation

8. Formulae and symbols
: must be written legibly and will be typeset in italics. One-layer indexing is preferable. Numbering of formulae, if necessary should be given in brackets fitted to the right margin.
: to the text should be numbered consecutively and placed on the bottom of the page to which they refer. Footnotes to the tables should be indicated by superscript lowercase letters.
10. Illustrations and tables
: all figures (photographs, graphs or diagrams) and tables should be cited in the text
and each numbered consecutively throughout. Lowercase roman letters should identify figure parts. Figure legends must be brief and must contain self-sufficient explanations of the illustrations. Each table should have a title and a legend explaining any abbreviation used in that table.
: SI units must be used.
12. Running head
: consisting of at most 60 characters a concise banner representing the title of the article must be submitted by the author(s).Proofreading

In such case please contact the Editor-in-chief before returning the proofs.References formattinga. Journal Article (one author)
