Map projection concerns the science of mathematical cartography, the techniques by which the Earth's dimensions, shape and features are translated in map form, be that two-dimensional paper or two- or three- dimensional electronic representations. The central focus of this book is on the theory of map projections. Mathematical cartography also takes in map scales and their variation, the division of maps into sets of sheets and nomenclature, and addresses the problems of making measurements and conducting investigations which make use of geodetic measurements and the development of graphical methods for solving problems of spherical trigonometry, marine- and aeronavigation, astronomy and even crystallography.A Reference Manual L M Bugayevskiy, John Snyder ... etc. x^, second derivative d2x/d4agt;2, etc. y rectangular coordinate: distance above the horizontal line (X- axis) passing through the origin ... longitude east of Greenwich (for longitude west of Greenwich, use a minus sign), or east of the central meridian in many formulas.
