Every Square Inch

Top of page

Every square inch of Canada, second largest country in the world, has been put on maps, and much of it is being mapped again, even more thoroughly. How such a vast territory is committed to paper is seen in this film, stage by stage: aerial photography; ground surveying with sophisticated instruments and at headquarters, the exacting work of translating, plotting, and printing.
