This publication appears on the occasion of the 65th birthday of Prof. Dr. Ferdinand Jan Ormeling. This book consists of three parts.
The first part contains his biography. We have tried to give an impression of all the work Ferjan Ormeling has done in the field of cartography. Attention is paid to Ferjan's student years, his academic achievements, his work as teacher and researcher at Utrecht University and his contributions to various national and international organisations in the field of cartography and toponymy.
The second part of this book contains a selection of fourteen articles, which appeared in proceedings of seminars or conferences. We selected articles which we thought were still worth reading today. This selection was made with two important criteria: 1. the article has a scientific content, and 2. the article must still be valid. Some articles contain old fashioned details, for example when countries like 'Czechoslovakia', or old computer software is mentioned. But the theories mentioned in the articles are still relevant. We wanted to include articles that deal with the various disciplines Ferjan is active in: atlas cartography, cartographic education, cartographic infrastructure, toponymy and the history of cartography.
The last part is Ferjan Ormeling's bibliography. It contains no less than 432 items Ferjan published from 1968 until now.
