The aim of the study is to demonstrate the peculiarities of the cartosemiotic structures manifestation in the sign systems axiomatic intertheory in the view of the metatheoretic approach. The quantitative and qualitative analysis of data and knowledge is based on vector bundle procedures of areal and triangular types on manifolds. Taking into account the principles of General semiotics, the generalization of the research results on cartographic signs and sign systems by the method of vectorization enables defining the universe of sign systems as a unity of fibering (stratification) equivalent forms with the linearly ordered structure: the character space of the fibering, the base of fiber bundle, fibered spaces and the connectivity of the sign fibers (complex symbols). The signs are vectorized in the fiber (layer) in the local character coordinates and form a polymorphic structure of signs in simplexes of different dimensions. They are transformed by displacement, rotation, scaling, as well as through interpretation, addition, multiplication, and unfolding of signs and sign complexing. All structures of linear order are sign systems and can be traced in each territorial object. The metatheoretic approach generalizes vector models and methods into triadic schemes of arranging semiotic knowledge, with which we can reasonably consider a territorial object as a combination of a scientific research subject, and map as signs system, and cartographic signs system to create as a sum or a product of spatial form and thematic content.
