Course aims:

The object of study of the cartography is the representation of the curved surface of the Earth on a flat surface (map) and the ways of using the maps for different scientific, military, spatial planning, tourist etc.
Specific objectives: - to learn the methods and procedures for representing the elements on the Earth's surface and their evolution over time;
- the study of representation systems.
