Introduction to the mathematics of maps
http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3581&ref=Feed
There are hundreds of map projections that have been described in the cartographic literature. It is our objective here to describe Maple tools that can be used in their creation<img src="/view.aspx?si=3581//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Introduction to the mathematics of maps" align="left"/>There are hundreds of map projections that have been described in the cartographic literature.

http://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3592&ref=Feed
A simple procedure to calculate the metric coefficients of a surface parametrized by theta and phi (since we will be dealing with the sphere) is presented here. A small bit of area on a surface is approximated by the parallelogram spanned by tangent vectors. Finally, a procedure is included to calculate the Gauss curvature of a surface directly from metric coefficients<img src="/view.aspx?si=3592//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Mathematics of map projections" align="left"/>A simple procedure to calculate the metric coefficients of a surface parametrized by theta and phi (since we will be dealing with the sphere) is presented here.
