This work should help anyone who has problems with the mathematics involved in map making or who wishes to acquire a better grounding in the subject. It starts from an elementary standpoint in which no previous knowledge is assumed, and progresses to give the student a sufficient level of understanding to cope with most topics encountered by the map maker, including those of elementary surveying. A large number of worked examples is given, together with exercises (and answers), for the reader to perform.

New methods of acquiring spatial data and the advent of geographic information systems (GIS) for handling and manipulating data mean that we no longer must rely on paper maps from a single source, but can acquire, combine, and customize spatial data as needed. To ensure quality results, however, one must

Computer science provides a powerful tool that was virtually unknown three generations ago. Some of the classical fields of knowledge are geodesy (surveying), cartography, and geography. Electronics have revolutionized geodetic methods. Cartography has faced the dominance of the computer that results in simplified cartographic products. All three fields make use
