The production of geological maps
This book is about working with existing geological maps, but an understanding and appreciation of such maps would be incomplete without some knowledge of what goes into their production. Many stages are involved, from the detailed field surveying required for large-scale maps, through the preparation of ‘fair copy maps’, and the design and execution of a final printed version. Greenly and Williams (1930, p. 99) list twenty-three steps; this chapter merely outlines what is involved.
