The book begins with a chapter reviewing some examples of field notes and their interpretations. Mr Wattles then leads us through chapters discussing basic plotting of topography and boundaries, relating maps to descriptions, lettering and line work and drafting tools. All of this is laying the ground work for the succeeding chapters wherein he treats with the more complex problems of preparing the actual working drawings, the topographic map and its related grading plans, cross sections, quantities and earthwork calculations. The twelfth chapter covers the subject of special maps. The final chapters deal with the subject of geographic control, as it relates to mapping.''
