Abstract:An overview is presented of the main subjects connected with topographic information systems, such as feature objects, object generalisation, acquisition criteria and minimum dimension. The ISO 19110 standard and INSPIRE initiative are explained in relation to minimum dimensions and data collection. The main section of the article refers to experiences in criteria acquisition within ATKIS and STOKIS. These are shown in mutual comparison and in comparison with solutions in classical cartography. The problem of minimum collecting dimensions of buildings is given special treatment. Adequate solutions to this problem are offered on the basis of research conducted. Experiences in treating linear and area features and how to select minimum collecting dimensions for the purpose of achieving optimal results are also presented. The research results are applicable in countries attempting to create their own topographic information system, or wanting to produce a new edition of their feature catalogue, as is the case in Croatia.
