The richly illustrated manual contains instructions on quick yet precise map-making on the field for military purposes. The illustrations represent the basic techniques of measuring, sketching, calculating and rules of perspective.

The book is a pioneering work on this subject in Greek language and is dedicated to fallen Greek soldiers in the Greco-Turkish War of 1922.

The author of the book Odysseus Maroulis (1878-1956) was a map maker, a professor of topography between 1917 and 1920, professor of Military Survey in 1923 and the director of the Military Surveying Office from 1930 until 1936.
