The first edition of Fundamentals of Cartography was published in 1969 by Prasaranga, University of Mysore. It was reprinted by the Concept Publishing Company, New Delhi in …… While the book remained in currency, the cartographic processes changed drastically when information technology brought a sea of change in the sources of information, drafting of maps and printing processes. Drawing maps by hand became obsolete; surveying whether ground or aerial was no longer the only major source of information. In view of these changes, it became necessary to bring out a new edition. Realising that unless one knows directions, scales, projections, coordinates, ground and air surveys one would fail to understand the proper use of modern information technology in the drawing the maps. Thus the contents of 1969 edition are retained and new chapters have been added to update the book. In Part II of the book, a chapter on Remote Sensing and Satellite Imageries has been added and Part V contains chapters on Computer Aided Cartography, Geographic Information System (GIS), Land Information System (LIS), and Global Positioning System (GPS).
