Published in 1981, the Fourth Edition of Glossary of Mapping, Charting, and Geodetic Terms provides detailed information on maps, charts, and associated terms. It is designed to help users at all levels understand and communicate effectively by using the same language with regards to maps and mapping. Terms are alphabetically arranged, and terms with multiple definitions are numbered and, wherever applicable, identified with the appropriate science, discipline, or function in paratheses. At the end of some definitions the user's attention is directed to related terms by the expression "see also."

The first edition of The Surveying Handbook, although a ground breaker, was widely accepted. However, surveying is a dynamic profession with each new development just one step ahead of the next, and updating became critical. In addition, the editors received constructive criticism about the first edition that needed to be addressed. So, while the objective of The Handbook remains intact, the logical evolution of the profession, along with the need to recognize constructive criticism, led to the second edition. chapters have been added on water boundaries, boundary law, and geodetic positioning New satellites. The chapter on land data systems was rewritten to provide a dramatic updating of information, thus broadening the coverage of The Handbook. The same may be said for the state plane coordinate chapter. The material on public lands and construction surveying was reorganized as well. Appendices were added to tabulate some information that was buried in the earlier edition in several places. Numerous other changes were incorporated to help the handbook retain its profession-wide scope, one step beyond the scope of an upper-division college textbook. Along with the most sophisticated techniques and equipment, the reader can find information on techniques once popular and still important. Four new authors are welcomed to the list of contributors: Grenville Barnes, R. B. Buckner, Donald A. Wilson, and Charles D. Ghilani.
