3rd Military Survey was conducted as a result of lost war with Prussia. This conflict showed 2nd Military Survey maps as out of date and unable to supoprt modern military campaign. The resulting survey campaign started in 1869 and lasted until 1885. Its product - 3rd Military Survery maps - became the longest activelly used and one the most important map sets in czech lands.

The new maps abandonded the 1:28 800 scale of its predecessors and used scale 1:25 000. and changed the map layout - the surveyed area was divided according to geographical grid into so called topographic sections (displaying and areas of 15´ in longitude and 7´30´´ in latitude).

Originals of topographic sections were coloured, but they were reproduced only in shades of grey by photography or photolitography

Special maps of 3rd Military Survey were maps derived from 3rd Military Survey 1:25 000. They were published shortly after their source maps - between years 1874 and 1880. These maps were continuously updated and published, sometimes in colour, until year 1920. As a result these maps exist in a large number of editions covering irregularly the area of contemporary Czech Republic.

These maps stayed in use as official maps of the Czech Republic until 1956.
