The book encompasses a wide range of topics on practical geography taught to the B.A./B.Sc. students of Indian universities. Numerous examples and diagrams have been included in the text with the sole aim of enabling the students to have a comprehensive grasp of the subject. Attempt has also been made to present a well-balanced treatment of each topic. Topics like measurement of ground areas from maps, determination of class-interval for choropleth maps, representation of agricultural, industrial and transport data, choice of map projections, interpretation of topo-sheets, etc., have been included in this book and discussed in detail. Books treating various aspects of practical geography need regular up-dates. Therefore, the latest available material has been used to up-date this edition. Guidance of learned college and university teachers has enabled the author to present the subject-matter clearly and accurately. It is hoped that in addition to developing a keen interest for practical geography, it will form the basis for a more advanced study of the subject among the students.
