Map Projections: Approaches and Themes
Steward, H. J.
Journal of Geography, 69, 7, 390-400, Oct '70
Map projections take on new meaning with location systems needed for satellites, other planets and space. A classroom approach deals first with the relationship between the earth and the globe, then with transformations to flat maps. Problems of preserving geometric qualities: distance, angles, directions are dealt with in some detail as are measures of deformation. (NH)
