A study of survey and mapping periodicals and conference proceedings reveals very little material on the subject of geographical names and suggests that cartographers take an insufficient interest in this aspect of their work. Host of recent significant thought and investigation has been by experts in other fields, e.g. languages or anthropology. Of work published in the English language, the papers of Aurousseau, Berry and Burrill at the Fifth International Congress of Toponymy and Anthroponomy at Salamanca in 1955, and other works by the same authors, are particularly valuable to cartographers.
