Between 1922 and 1973 Eduard Imhof worked on numerous school maps and wall maps. Besides his school map of Switzerland 1:500 000 he drew maps for the Swiss cantons of Aargau, Appenzell, Basel, Bern, Glarus, the Grisons, Lucerne, Neuchâtel, Schaffhausen, St. Gall, Ticino and Zurich as well as for the Austrian Province of Vorarlberg. Sections from different maps are shown, and in different states, original drawings, separate prints of special colors a.s.o. By working on these school maps Imhof put his cartographic theories into practice.
