Abstract: This document contains the mapping guidelines for Copernicus Emergency Management Service (EMS) mapping production. It summarizes the JRC experience developed in the frame of Copernicus with respect to the challenging task of providing maps in support of the disaster risk management cycle. The main focus is on the rush mode mapping service, however the guidelines are applicable to the non-rush service as well. The document approaches the map per part component: title, cartographic information, overview maps, legend, and map frame, etc. Some specific and innovative elements are introduced, e.g. the summary table and the standard use of vector files. Particular attention is devoted to the consistency across the components that constitute the product. The structure and the schematic organization of the guidelines allow considering this document as a kind of practical handbook.
