Sažetak
The book is aimed at those who display maps, as well as those who look at them. Computer-assisted cartographic techniques now make a variety of map projections quickly and inexpensively available. What is still needed is a more critical concern with their intelligent use and taking into account distortions that are immanent in any map projection. A well-chosen map projection is one in which extreme distortions are smaller than those in any other projection used to map the same area and map properties match the purpose of the map. The 'Handbook on Choosing a Map Projection' has been prepared by experts, but with an intention to serve laymen. The authors of the book are prominent experts in the field of map projections, e.g. W. Tobler, F. C. Kessler, S. E. Battersby, M. P. Finn, K. C. Clarke, V. S. Tikunov, H. Hargitai, B. Jenny, M. P. Finn and N. Frančula, just to mention some of them. The book editors are M. Lapaine and E. L. Usery, Chair and Vice-Chair respectively, of the ICA Commission on Map Projections for the period 2011-2015
