Abstract : The report describes the methods applied in different countries for the compilation of maps, of recent vertical movements velocities on considerable territories. Much attention is given to consideration of the principles of the choice of reference surface for the compilation of the maps mentioned above. The researches carried out in the Moscow Research Institute of Geodesy. Aerophotosurvey and Cartography proved that the most applicable reference surface in the compilation of the maps of recent vertical velocities is the surface mean level of the World Ocean, which is assumed to be constant in time.
