Description: The purpose of this book is to provide a practical guide to the problems commonly encountered when using datums and map projections. The widespread use of satellite positioning systems, combined with the development of geographic information systems, have made paper maps obsolete and made it necessary to use global models. To assure the quality of the cartographic products, it is essential that the diverse coordinate frameworks are fully understood. As this book provides some fundamental definitions, as well as more detailed explanationsis, is aimed to users with different levels of background knowledge. Emphasis is put in the solution of practical problems, and worked examples and appendices with useful formulae. First chapters deal with typical transformations and procedures, two- and three-dimensional representations of Earth coordinates, vertical datums, and the ways in which datums are established on a global, regional, or local basis. After an introduction to the global positioning systems, and the problems that can arise with the use of different,the author introduces the fundamentals of map projections, and look at the different types in some detail. Models and procedures for transforming directly between data sets, based on the identification of common points, are treated in Chapter 12, while Chapter 13 introduces several case studies.
