Abstract:

The use of high-speed electronic digital computers for the computation and the use of their printers, plotters, and scopes for the graphical portrayal of various kinds of map projections is now well established. In this paper, the presence of implicit or built-in, but hitherto ignored, projections in the various sizes of character space print-outs for the standard computer printers is considered.
