This is a comprehensive and practical guide for field scientists, which addresses the problems of surveying, mapping and cartographic communication by a variety of techniques. The authors provide a basic grounding in survey work, by ground, air and satellite methods, and in cartographic presentation of the data. The text is complemented by more than 200 illustrations, including 4 pages of full-colour plates, showing satellite images and aerial photography. The work is intended for undergraduate students in geography, geology, environmental and ecological sciences. It also offers supplementary reading for those in surveying, photogrammetry, remote sensing and cartography.
