In the century that saw the rise of histories of cartography, the cordiform maps became curiosities, only redeemed by the prestige of the cartographers who made them or their relationship with other experiments in map projection
in the early sixteenth century.
The idea of designing a new map projection
by combining two existing projections is well established.
In paperworks using Geographic Information System, comes up the necessity to incorporate information from paper maps or digital maps in matrix format, of which is not known the map projection
and the datum reference.
process was performed into ArcView which allows to choose from a large number of standard map projections
and coordinate systems or allows to customize the key projection parameters.
-- Image Analyst provides all the functionality of Image Viewer and I/RAS C plus advanced image processing and analysis functions such as map projection
transformations, spatial and spectral processing, multispectral classification and more.
The system, however, has one serious fault - its use requires the perpetuation of monuments set in the original government survey, the positions of which on the surface of the earth were not related to a scientifically established map projection
Al-Idrisi's silver disc was a form of map projection
considerably in advance of others of its time.
Control points are locations where positions are known in both the map's relative coordinate system (coordinates directly from the digitizer or scanner) and in a real world map projection
(e.g., State Plane or Universal Transverse Mercator).
COMPREHENSION: Which map projection
is most commonly used in U.S.
