FEDERAL LAW OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION

of December 26, 1995 No. 209-FZ

About geodesy and cartography

(as amended on 06-04-2015)

Accepted by the State Duma on November 22, 1995

This Federal Law establishes the legal basis of activities in the field of geodesy and cartography.

This Federal Law is directed to creation of conditions for requirements satisfaction of the state, citizens and legal entities in geodetic and cartographic products, and also conditions for functioning and interaction of public authorities of the Russian Federation in the field of geodesy and cartography.

Chapter I. General provisions

Article 1. Basic concepts

For the purposes of this Federal Law the following basic concepts are used:

geodesy - area of the relations arising in the course of scientific, technical and productive activity by determination of figure, the sizes, gravitational field of Earth, coordinates of points of the land surface and their changes in time;

cartography - area of the relations arising in the course of scientific, technical and productive activity on studying, creation and use of cartographic works which body are cartographic images;

activities in the field of geodesy and cartography (geodetic and cartographic activities) - scientific, technical, productive and management activity in the field of geodesy and cartography;

geodetic and cartographic works - process of creation geodetic and cartographic products, materials and data;

kartografo-geodetic fund - set of the materials and data created as a result of implementation of geodetic and cartographic activities and subjects to long-term storage for the purpose of their further use.

Article 2. Legal regulation in the field of geodetic and cartographic activities

1. Legal regulation in the field of geodetic and cartographic activities is performed according to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, this Federal Law, the laws and other regulatory legal acts of the Russian Federation.

This Federal Law governs legal relations in the field of geodetic and cartographic activities.

The property and related personal non-property relations arising in the course of geodetic and cartographic activities are regulated by the civil legislation of the Russian Federation.

2. The conventional principles and rules of international law and the international agreements of the Russian Federation in the field of geodetic and cartographic activities are component of system of law of the Russian Federation.

The international agreements of the Russian Federation are applied to the relations in the field of geodetic and cartographic activities directly, except as specified, if follows from the international treaty of the Russian Federation that its application requires adoption of the interstate act.

If the international treaty of the Russian Federation establishes other rules, than those which are provided by this Federal Law are applied rules of the international treaty.

Article 3. Geodetic and cartographic activities

1. Geodetic and cartographic activities proceeding from purpose of the performed works include:

geodetic and cartographic works of federal appointment which results have nation-wide, cross-industry value;

geodetic and cartographic works of special (industry) purpose which need of carrying out is determined by needs of subjects of the Russian Federation, municipalities, separate industries, citizens and legal entities.

2. Treat geodetic and cartographic works of federal appointment:

determination of parameters of figure of Earth and external gravitational field for this purpose;

creation and updating of the state topographic maps and plans in graphical, digital, photographic and other forms, the accuracy and which content provide the solution of nation-wide, defense, research and other tasks; edition of these cards and plans; topographical monitoring;

creation, development and maintenance in working order the state leveling and geodetic networks, including gravimetric fundamental and the first class which density and accuracy provide creation of the state topographic maps and plans, the solution of nation-wide, defense, research and other tasks;

remote sensing of Earth for the purpose of ensuring geodetic and cartographic activities;

geodynamic researches based on geodetic and space measurements;

creation and maintaining federal and regional kartografo-geodetic funds;

creation and maintaining geographical information systems of federal and regional appointment;

designing, creation and edition of all-geographical, political and administrative, scientific and help and other thematic cards and atlases of cross-industry appointment, education cartographic guidances;

carrying out geodetic, cartographic, topographical and hydrographic works for the purpose of ensuring defense and safety of the Russian Federation;

geodetic, cartographic, topographical and hydrographic support of delimitation, demarcation and check of passing of the line of Frontier of the Russian Federation, and also delimitation of sea spaces of the Russian Federation; providing with geodetic, cartographic, topographical and hydrographic materials and data on establishment and change of borders of subjects of the Russian Federation, borders of municipalities;

mapping of Antarctica, continental shelf of the Russian Federation, territories of foreign states, World Ocean, including creation of topographic and sea maps;

production of geodetic and hydrographic works in oceans and the seas for the purpose of safety of general navigation;

metrological support of geodetic, cartographic and topographical works;

establishment, normalization, use streamlining, registration, accounting and preserving names of geographical objects;

accomplishment of research and development works in the directions specified in this Item;

organization of serial production of the geodetic and cartographic equipment.

3. Treat geodetic and cartographic works of special (industry) purpose:

creation and updating of the topographical plans intended for creation of master plans of sites of construction of different objects, underground networks and constructions, binding of buildings and constructions to sites of construction and also for accomplishment of other special works;

creation and maintaining geographical information systems of special purpose;

creation of thematic cards, plans and atlases of special purpose in graphical, digital and other forms, the edition of these cards, plans and atlases;

geodetic, topographical, aero film-making and other special works in case of engineering researches, construction and operation of buildings and constructions, land surveying of lands, maintaining inventories, other researches and special works;

accomplishment of research and development works in the directions specified in this Item;

creation, development and maintenance in working order geodetic networks of special purpose.
