It is not the intention of this title to delve into the mathematical formulation, since, in my opinion, it contributes little to the civil engineer and in turn there are very complete treatises intended for more specialized readers in the field.
This short text begins by outlining some basic cartographic concepts, with particular emphasis on reference systems, which are currently in flux and which the civil engineer should know before starting to work with cartographic data.
The fundamental part of the text focuses on digital photogrammetry and, insisting again on its simplicity, tries to explain, from professional experience, the entire work process, from the moment a photogrammetric flight is commissioned, until the digital cartography it reaches the hands of an engineer to work on it, with its exactitudes and details.
Therefore, it is intended that this work helps civil engineering professionals to assess and know how to correctly handle the cartographic data that to a greater or lesser extent will be the basis of their work.

Written by Javier Valencia Mtz. de Antoñana, in the book “Past, present and future of Spatial Data Infrastructures”, it is intended to make a thorough review of what these tools entail, their origin, their current state and their future trends .
Miguel Ángel Bernabé, co-editor of the book «Fundamentals of Spatial Data Infrastructures» has informed us that one of the most important manuals on SDI has been made available free of charge through the website of the General Foundation of the UPM.

The contribution made by the Cooperative Program for the Agrifood and Agroindustrial Technological Development of the Southern Cone (PROCISUR), with this second book “Manual of precision agriculture” is to put in a simple context the knowledge and advances that exist in this set of new technologies emerging. The publication was conceived with the objective of facilitating access to information, training and qualification of extension professionals who have to face these new challenges posed by precision agriculture and which will undoubtedly be of increasingly wide use in the future.
