[Arthur Hinckley]. In cartography, a map projection is a way to flatten a globe's surface into a plane in order to make a map. This requires a systematic transformation of the latitudes and longitudes of locations from the surface of the globe into locations on a plane.

Analytical derivation of some map projections including examples of pseudocylindrical and polyconic projections is also covered. Work undertaken in the USA and USSR on the creation of suitable map projections obtained through numerical analysis has been included. Map projections by practical construction book book concludes with a chapter on Map projections by practical construction book abuse and misrepresentation of map.

Deakin School of Mathematical and Geospatial Sciences RMIT University, GPO Box V, MELBOURNE VIC The illustrations below show some of the common map projections used today.

The first two-dimensional projection shows the Earth's surface as viewed from space (Figure 2a-2). This orthographic projection distorts distance, shape, and the size of areas.

Another serious limitation of this projection is that only a portion of the Earth's. Map projection linear distortion is manifested as a difference in distance between a pair of projected (map grid) coordinates and the true horizontal distance at the surface of the Earth.

This book is an appropriate text for a course in the mathematical aspects of mapping and cartography. Map projections are of interest to workers in many fields.

Some of these are mathematicians, engineers, surveyors, geodicests, geographers, astronomers, and military intelligence analysts and strategists. Mercator projection, a map projection introduced by Flemish cartographer Gerardus Mercator in The Mercator projection is a useful navigation tool, as a straight line on a Mercator map indicates a straight course, but it is not a practical world map, because of distortion of scale near the poles.

From the elementary geometry of sphere and cylinder it is clear that each N, N N r' Q strip of the projection is equal in area to the zone on the model which it represents, and that each portion of a strip is equal in area to the corresponding portion of a zone.

Thus, each small four-sided figure (on the model. LIAM E. GUMLEY, in Practical IDL Programming, MAPPING. Map projections may be defined in IDL Direct Graphics. When a map projection is in effect, the data coordinates for the current graphics window or device correspond to longitude (x-axis) and latitude (y-axis) in fractional degrees, and the oplot, plots, xyouts, and contour procedures plot in terms of longitude and latitude.

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. Map - Map - Maps and geography in the ancient world: The earliest specimens thus far discovered that are indisputably portrayals of land features are the Babylonian tablets previously mentioned; certain land drawings found in Egypt and paintings discovered in early tombs are nearly as old.

It is quite probable that these two civilizations developed their mapping skills more or less. Over the years since its first appearance, "datums and map projections" has become a key book for many students and professionals around the world.

Its theme - a practical guide to coordinate reference systems - is as important now as when it was first published, probably more so when we consider the ever growing use of satellite navigation.

MAP PROJECTIONS In the construction of maps, one has to consider how a portion of spherical surface, or a configuration traced on a sphere, can be represented on a plane. If the area to be represented bear a very small ratio to the whole surface of the sphere, the matter is easy: thus, for instance, there is no difficulty in making a map of a parish, for in such cases the curvature of the.
