Beineke (2001) says this is probably because this ‘‘archaic’’ projection is a special case that does not fit into any of the usual theoretical classifications of map projections (azimuthal, cylindrical, conical, conformal, equivalent, equidistant) or others. Pseudocylindrical projections were probably omitted in Beineke’s statement. On the other hand, Beineke (2001) says that no modern maps were made on the basis of such an abstract and surreal cartographic grid. This is not true, because polyhedric projection was fairly widespread in the production of topographic maps in the last century.

The capital of Croatia, Zagreb, is represented on the map in two different places! The correct location of Zagreb is labelled with the city’s German name, Agram, but there is also a town with the Latin name Zagrabia near Sisak. These were the three main reasons that led to the idea of researching the accuracy of the map. For the purpose of analysis, the sample of the map Sclavonia, Croatia, Bosnia cum Dalmatiae parte from the Novak Collection, Sign. -1, dated about 1630 (Fig. 1), was selected. This sample was previously published in the monograph Pet stoljec´a geografskih i pomorskih karata Hrvatske/Five Centuries of Maps and Charts of Croatia (Novak et al.

Germany launched its first polar expedition in 1866. 1 Julius Payer, a Czech explorer, took part in the second German Polar Expedition (1869–1870). He would later take part in both Austro–Hungarian expeditions in the capacity of cartographer and leader of field surveys and make the first maps of Franz Joseph Land. The preparations for the Austro–Hungarian North Pole Expedition, made possible by the Geographic Society’s enthusiasm and count Jozef Wiltczek’s generous financial backing, proceeded under the watchful eye of August Petermann.
