The Map Making Process Documentary DVD
The Map Making Process is a documentary prepared by the U.S. Defense Department in 1973. In this documentary, you will learn the theory of mapmaking, the methods, tools and techniques used to produce a wide variety of maps. It also delves deeply into the importance of planning and surveying areas to get elevations and accurate boundary marks. It then examines the way all the data is compiled to produce the "master" map and make copies from that master.
This documentary is fascinating because although the tools used today are more modern, the core principles used to generate maps haven't really changed - making it a fascinating glimpse into this arcane yet vital process.
The total run time of this DVD is 35 minutes. Below are some scenes from this film:
