The elaboration of maps is such an old activity that made a mistakes with the humanity's own history. This shows the importance that the map allways had for the man. lt was objectified to present in summarized form some considerations concerning as form of representation of the curved surface of the Earth on a plan.

In Brazil, the UTM system became adopted in 1955, for the Management of Geographical Service of the Army (DSG)
