  author={W. Randolph Franklin},
Several applications of analytical cartography are presented. They include terrain visibility (including visibility indices, viewsheds, and intervisibility), map overlay (including solving roundoff errors with C++ class libraries and computing polygon areas from incomplete information), mobility, and interpolation and approximation of curves and of terrain (including curves and surfaces in CAD/CAM, smoothing terrains with overdetermined systems of equations, and drainage patterns).
