Geodetic Survey and Mapping in the Puräëas


Author(s): K. Vidyata

Abstract: India\'s major contributions to astronomy, geometry, and other branches of mathematics and the remarkably creative exuberance of its culture is widely known from the Sanskrit scriptures. From the same scriptures we can infer much about the nature of cartography in its broadest sense, including cosmography, over much of the span of Indian history and we may reasonably suppose that some of the indigenous maps of the past several centuries carry on traditions of considerable antiquity. This paper will bring to light the accurate methods of geodetic survey and mapping performed by our ancient scholars that have been recorded in our Puräëas.
