The article proposes a new development concept of topographic mapping in Ukraine. The goal. It is based on the implementation of a new system model that responds to the geoinformation approach to topographic mapping in the development of National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) and provides the creation of geospatial data sets in the form of databases and knowledge bases based on existing standards and specifications: series of International Standards ISO 19100 “Geographic information/Geomatics”, Open Geospatial Consortium (OGS), INSPIRE, National Standards of Ukraine (DSTU), Complex of Standards Organization of Ukraine (SOU) “Topographic database”. Methods. The basis for the research is the analysis of the possibilities of applying the theory of databases and knowledge bases International Standards and specifications. Scientific novelty and practical significance. It provides a high intellectual level of Core Reference and profile geospatial data, which is capable to provide geoinformation analysis and modeling in modern GIS. In addition, the implementation the infrastructure approach to topographic production and the creation and development of a permanent topographic monitoring system will ensure the publication of geospatial data in real time, almost simultaneously with changes in the terrain, which guarantees the maintenance of the single digital topographic basis and, accordingly, Core Reference Datasets for NSDI.
