Sažetak
Studying the map projection in which a particular map was made has always been a challenge. This is especially true of old maps made several hundred years ago. Even if a graticule is drawn on the map, the map projection is not immediately obvious. One such map is the Nuova carta geografica dello Stato Ecclesiastico, by Josip Ruđer Bošković and Charles Maire, dated 1755. Examining the graticule drawn on the map, it is noticeable that the meridians appear to be straight lines, while the parallels are curved lines which might be circle arcs. This paper will outline the procedure for examining the straightness of lines and curvature of arcs on old maps. For the analysis of the straightness of lines and curvature of arcs, the Euclidean distance method is proposed. As an illustration, the proposed method will be used to facilitate research on the map projection of Bošković and Maire’s map.
