 After World War II, certain cartographical materials were inherited from the holdings of the former War Archive and Museum of the Independent State of Croatia; cartographical material relevant to the People’s Liberation War became part of the holdings of the former People’s Liberation of Croatia Museum (later the Revolution of the Peoples of Croatia Museum) according to the then policy and special instructions, the ‘Instructions for Collecting Material from the People’s Liberation Struggle for the People’s Liberation Museum’, Zagreb, 1945.
 The Collection’s holdings also include general maps of the Federal People’s Republic of Yugoslavia and the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, such as the maps Federativna Narodna Republika Jugoslavija (inv. no. HPM-32370) and Socialistična Federativna Republika Jugoslavija (inv. no. HPM-93715) published by the Zagreb company Učila. Along with the mentioned overview maps, the company also published historical maps of the Croatian lands at the time before the arrival of the Croats, the time of the rulers of ‘Croatian blood’, the 19th century (until 1918), and the 20th century (after 1918), entitled Hrvatska prije doseljenja Hrvata, Hrvatska u doba narodnih vladara, Hrvatska u kasnom srednjem vijeku, Hrvatska u XIX. stoljeću (do 1918.), and Hrvatska u XX. stoljeću (poslije 1918. godine), respectively. These were authored by Dr Josip Lučić (inv. no. HPM-102987–102991).

The Cartographical Collection of the Croatian History Museum holds over 1,000 topographic and topical maps printed from the early 19th to the late 20th centuries, published by two prominent cartographical institutions of central and southeastern Europe, the Imperial and Royal Military Geographical Institute in Vienna and the Military Geographical Institute in Belgrade. The presented cartographical material is of great cultural historical as well as national significance, because it directly attests to the territorial, administrative, and cultural changes on the Croatian lands and territory in the mentioned period.
The national history museum’s policy of collecting cartographical material attests to the mentioned development and integration processes of the Croatian territory and lands, and is based on the principles of purchase and donation. Therefore, the cartographical editions of the mentioned institutes were collected systematically and in a targeted manner. As a consequence of the numerous political changes in Croatia in the 20th century, which resulted in the collapse of entire state systems (the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, the State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs, the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, the Independent State of Croatia, Democratic Federal Yugoslavia, the Federal People’s Republic of Yugoslavia, and the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia), the material created by the institutes in Vienna and Belgrade also became part of the Cartographical Collection of the Croatian History Museum.
The first e-catalogue, entitled The Maps of Military Geographical Institutes in the Croatian History Museum, presents previously unpublished cartographical material of the military geographical institutes in Vienna and Belgrade from the holdings of the Cartographical Collection, which contribute to the historical valorisation and significance of this type of cartographical material. The selected topographic and topical maps, plans, and atlases presented in this catalogue shall surely also ennoble the first permanent display of the Croatian History Museum.
