About this book

In the context of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) the book offers a timely review of map projections (sphere, ellipsoid, rotational surfaces) and geodetic datum transformations. For the needs of photogrammetry, computer vision, and remote sensing space projective mappings are reviewed.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This technical reference book covers Map Projections for the sphere, ellipsoid and rotational surfaces, and geodetic datum transformations. It is intended primarily for graduate students and lectures in GIS, photogrammetry, computer vision and remote sensing. … It is also suitable for students and academics working in mapping sciences and related geographical fields. … The book is recommended strongly to all who are practicing or who are interested in multimedia cartography or related cartographic mapping and visualization fields." (Eva Siekierska, Geomatica, Vol. 61 (2), 2007)
