An introduction to cartography emphasizing map projections: their properties, applications and basic mathematics.
The same text is included here in two versions using differently colored maps. Please choose (a small sample is shown in normal and larger sizes):
|Plain images, smaller and faster to load. Enter here.|
|Dithered images, usually larger and coarser. May look better in color-constrained systems. This feature is deprecated and now removed (internal legacy links preserved), as I believe very few people still use 8-bpp displays.|
