will of the Bourbon Spanish monarchy, since its inception after War of the Spanish Succession,
in order to establish a standardized organizational procedures and methods of
spatial representation by military professionals, basically engineers and draftsmen, in
terms of mapping processes used throughout this technical-artistic discipline. The contribution,
based mainly on documentary sources, focuses its analysis on the institutional
and regulatory mechanisms of the process during the first half of the eighteenth Century

and activity of military engineers around the representation of space in different ways.
This work shows the difficulties that existed to organize a universal frame of reference
prior to a further corporate consolidation.
