Part of the Springer Geography book series (SPRINGERGEOGR)


Cartometry is a part of cartography studying the problem of measuring maps, which is an inevitable one in the area of cartography as well. It is on the basis of previously studied mathematical and geographic elements of maps that map measuring is built involving in this case: determining point coordinates (geographic, rectangular or polar), measuring distances in nature by using a map, measuring surface, ways of measuring angles (horizontal and vertical) and developing a ground profile. Natural values for the location of a certain point, as well as distances, surfaces, angles, and so on, are valuable data we get from a map and for the purpose of a variety of design and individual needs related to overland orientation and movement.
