The Russians preferred the Walbeck 1819 ellipsoid where a = 6,376,896 meters and the reciprocal of flattening, (1/f) = 302.78.
The first period of geodetic surveying and mapping in Western Russia was from 1845 to 1920.
The principal mapping agency for this period was the Korpus Voyennykh Topografov – KVT (Corps of Military Topographers) under the Russian Imperial General Staff


The projection of this map is equivalent cartographic projection Bonne, Central Pulkovsky Meridian, Central parallel 52 degrees.
Sheet size : 23 x 16,5 English inches.


Trehverstovka map covers Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, a part of Poland, and the European part of Russia.


How I did the old black-and-white map in color ?
I take Yandex-map for Russia, Visicom for Ukrain.

Transform Yandex-map and Visicom-map to Bonne projection with Walbeck 1819,
transparent stick together with trehverstka, cut off. That's all.
