Map Projections: A Reference Manual

Map Projections: A Reference Manual Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Map projection concerns the science of mathematical cartography, the techniques by which the Earth's dimensions, shape and features are translated in map form, be that two-dimensional paper or two- or three- dimensional electronic representations. The central focus of this book is on the theory of map projections. Mathematical cartography also takes in map scales and their variation, the division of maps into sets of sheets and nomenclature, and addresses the problems of making measurements and conducting investigations which make use of geodetic measurements and the development of graphical methods for solving problems of spherical trigonometry, marine- and aeronavigation, astronomy and even crystallography.

Book News Annotation:

Cartographers know that you cannot get a map simply by flattening a globe any more than you can get an anatomical drawing by squashing a spider. Here is a joint Russian-American textbook for advanced or mathematically oriented students and practitioners on the science of transforming the round earth into a two- dimensional representation with specific features and uses. Discusses the calculations for the different types, projection research, choosing the right projection, automation, and other aspects. Revised from Kartograficheskiye Proyektsii: Spravochnoye Posobiye, published in Moscow in 1992.
