Photogrammetry and National Maps

The Swiss National Maps were published from 1938 onwards, a new map collection. This modernised and standardised the representation of Switzerland in map images. But the processes on which the national maps were based were also changing significantly: photogrammetric surveying methods and negative scribing on glass revolutionised work processes between 1926 and 1958.
