Construction of isarithms and isarithmic maps by computers

  • Bengt-Erik Bengtsson
  • Stig Nordbeck


The most important consideration in map construction is that the finished map shall give an objective picture of the actuality it represents. It is also important that the map can be produced quickly and efficiently with a minimum of manual labor. The coordinate mapping method fulfils these requirements to a very high degree. This article deals with isarithmic mapping methods adapted to the coordinate mapping method and to computers and automatic data processing.
