Map Projections Used by the U.S. Geological Survey (Bulletin 1532)
Map Projections Used by the US Geological Survey - Bulletin 1532 Author:John P. Snyder Geological Survey Bulletin 1532, Second Edition. — (First edition 1982, Second edition 1983, Reprint 1984). — This study of map projections is intended to be useful to both the reader interested in the philosophy or history of the projections and the reader desiring the mathematics. Under each of the sixteen projections described, the nonmathemati... more »cal phases are presented first, without interruption by formulas. They are followed by the formulas and tables, which the first type of reader may skip entirely to pass to the nonmathematical discussion of the next projection. Even with the mathematics, there are almost no derivations, very little calculus, and no complex variables or matrices. The emphasis is on describing the characteristics of the projection and how it is used.
The Bulletin includes a pocket with a large 30 x 36 inch foldout illustrating The Properties and Uses of Selected Map Projections prepared by the author. These include:
