About this book

Topographic maps are essential tools for use in development projects, resource exploitation, the planning of construction, infrastructure and recreation. They also give detailed illustration of the relative degrees of development of areas within a landscape and are thus useful in demonstrating the cultural status of a country. This three-volume set provides a source for information on topographic mapping. The information supplied for each country consists of a text (including a brief history of the development of topographic mapping), geodetic data, map scales and series, as well as extracts of maps and index sheets illustrating the present status of map coverage within that country. Volume 1 provides an introduction to world topographic mapping, giving details and examples of topographic maps from Western Europe, North America and Australasia. Volume 2 gives details and examples of topographic maps from Central and South America and Africa. Volume 3 contains specific details relating to the current coverage of states located in Eastern Europe, Asia, Oceania and Antarctica. The geographical positions of countries described are illustrated by means of a series of accompanying reference maps. These volumes should be of interest to cartographers, geographers, geologists and those involved in planning.
