1 Washington. The United States
coast and geodetic survey recently an
nounced the completion of a new out
line map of the United States on the
Lambert conformal conic projection,
This map is intended merely as a
base to which may be added any kind

The Map is of special Interest from
the fact that it is based on the same
sj'stem of projection as that employed
by the armies of the allied forces in
the military operations in France. To
meeF inose requirements and at the
request of the army, special publica
tions were prepared by the coast geo
detic survey. -
Many methods of projection have
been designed to solve the difficult
problem , of representing a spherical
surface on a plane. As different pro
jections have unquestionable merit as
well as equally serious defects, the
announcement states, any region to bej
mapped should be made the subject of
special study and that system of pro
jection adopted which will give the
best results for the area under consid
eration. Value of New Map.

western limits. Along the Pacific
coast and in Maine the error in scale
is as much as 6 per cent, while at
new York it reaches 44 per cent.

mat is, between latitudes SOU
and 49 degrees, the maximum scale
error is only one-half of 1 per cent.
This amount of scale error of one-half
of 1 per cent is frequently less than
the distortion due to the method of
printing and to changes from the hu
midity of the air. Only in southern
most Florida and Texas does this pro
jection attain its maximum error of
2 1-3 per cent.
The Lambert projection is well
adapted to large areas of predominat
ing east and west dimensions in the
United States where the distance
across from east to west Is 14.5 times
that of the distance north and south.

tion, on the other hand, Is along it?

Special features of the Lambert pro
jection that are not found In the poly
conic may be stated briefly as fol
' 1. The Lambert projection is con
formal that is, all angles between in
tersecting lines or curves are pre
served, and for any given point (or re
stricted locality) the ratio of the
vm. tt nuear element on the
earth's surface to tHe length of the cor
responding map elements Is eonstnnt
for all aximuths of directions In which
the elements may be taken.
;-2.The meridians are straight lines,
and the parallels are concentric cir--cles.
3. It has two axes of strength in
stead of one, the standard parallels of
the map of the United States being lat
itudes 33 degrees , and 45 degrees, and
upon these parallels the scale is abso
lutely free. The scale for any other
part of the map, or for any parallel,
can be obtained from pecial" publica
tion No. 52, page 36, UnitedStates
coast and geodetic survey. By
means of these tables the very mali
scale errors which exist in this pro
jection can be entirely eliminated.
The map measures 25 Inches by 39
inches and will be sold by the govern
ment at 25 cents. .
