This uncommon statistical atlas was made in Yugoslavia for the year 1973 and showcases the economic situation in the northeastern Slovenia, the region bordering Austria and Hungary. The maps show: the prognoses of the growth of social product per capita, migration, percentage of working people, deagrarization, school centers, energetic connections, drinking and industrial water, regulation of waters, canalization and cleaning of waters, transportation, functional farming fields,…
The maps were made by Peter Svetik, probably one of the most important names of Yugoslav modern geodesy. Svetik was a Slovene engineer of geodesy and a surveyor, who was leading major projects in the country, such as developing a system of new numeration of houses, establishing the geometrical center of Slovenia, and curating a collection of surveying instruments on the castle Bogenšperk.
Only 6 examples of the atlas are preserved in Slovenian libraries and none in institutions abroad.
