Transcript organise geological research to guarantee the proper and timely exploitation of all important useful minerals, such as coal, iron, oil, lumber, etc. In connection with the question of the proper organisation of the geological service of our Union, mention ought to be made of still another outstanding defect in studying our mineral resources, to wit, the absence of suitable topographical maps, an indispensable requisite both in geological charting and in mapping out the soil. We are greatly handicapped by this lack of topographical data almost every time we undertake the geological charting of a new district. Not so very long ago we grappled with the problem of getting up a chart of the Grozny oilfield district, and the principal obstacle we encountered was our crass ignorance of the topography of the terrain. The same dearth of topographical information made itself felt when we organised geological prospecting in the Baku district, on the so-called Kabristan Pastures. If we are handicapped by the lack of topographical maps in districts ranking first in industrial importance, what can you expect in districts of secondary importance in our Soviet Union? Thus, at this very moment, when we are faced with the tremendous problem of studying the territory of the Ural-Kuznetz Combine, we are at a disadvantage once again by reason of the absence of suitable topographical maps. We are in such urgent need of ascertaining the topographical basis of our country that we cannot afford to wait until such maps are furnished by the Chief Geodet- ical Bureau.* It is imperative that we organise aero- photographic charting, which has given such splendid * There is a passable map available, but only for 11% of the territory of Siberia, also a one-verst map (1 :5000) for 0.7% and a two-verst map (1 :10,000) for 6% of the territory. 2e 17
