The Manual is discussing both theory and different practical problems of map projections together with their development and application to the map design. The authors have made a brilliant attempt to provide readers with the results of years of professional research and experience of many specialists in this fields in a brief and systematical manner. Subject experience relates to any individual working on preparation of the maps; in fact, this is a very first international textbook on the subject using the experience of American and Russian specialists. The volume may serve as a remarkably precise handbook or practical manual to be used by engineers, scientists and cartographers o solve the practical problems using the methods of mathematical cartography and space imagery. It may also be used for training purposes in the colleges or even for the self-study. The effective solution of the problems relating to the science and commerce is based on a broad use of the maps prepared in various scales, having various contents and released for various purposes. The publication provides information on the general theory, projections with straight parallels and with parallels in concentric/non-concentric circles, relevant researches, established numerical methods, identification and choice of the projections and many other useful and practical information.
