            Dear Ron,


            I think you know that I am interested in collecting different names of different languages of the undersea features and the seas. I continued and will continue this work with my students at the Department of Cartography of the Eötvös Loránd University Budapest.


            If you think so this would be one of the themes for the Working Group. If I have the possibility to take part of the 17th International Cartographic Conference of ICA, I will give you the Multilingual Gazetteer of the North and South Atlantic, the North and South Pacific and the Indian Oceans. These are such papers that I showed you in Köln on the Artctic Ocean.


            In the next period of the Working Group in 1995—97 I plan to put these data and maps to a PC programme developed by a Hungarian Company „Rudas & Karig”. This will be one of the first Hungarian Electronic Atlases.



                                                                        Yours sincerely


                                                                                    Mátyás Márton
