Datums and Map Projections

For Remote Sensing GIS and Surveying


By Dr. J.C. Iliffe



This book is a practical guide for those working with spatially referenced data and the problems that may be associated with datums and map projections. There has been a vast increase in the use of spatial data in recent years due to the development of geographic information systems for handling and manipulating data in digital form and also the development of techniques such as the global positioning system and satellite (or airborne) remote sensing. Increasingly, this is a subject that many non-specialists find they have to deal with and the book makes the issues clear without assuming any prior knowledge. The book focuses on solving the problems encountered when combining data from different sources, and explores short cuts applicable when incomplete information is available. There are many practical examples and extensive case studies and appendices of essential formulae.
