Emil von Sydow (15 July 1812 — 13 October 1873) was a German geographer and cartographer born in Freiberg, Saxony. Prior to 1843 he was a geography instructor at the military academy in Erfurt, afterwards being appointed as a member of the Ober- Militär-Examinationscommission in Berlin. In 1849 he began giving instruction in geography to Prince Albrecht of Prussia, and soon afterwards gave lectures on military geography at the Allgemeinen Kriegsschule. From 1855 to 1860 he performed geographical and cartological duties in Gotha, then returned to Berlin, where in 1867 he was appointed Abtheilungschef (division chief) to the Prussian General Staff. In 1870 he attained the rank of Colonel, and died three years later in Berlin due to cholera.

  • Эмиль фон Зюдов (или Зидов, нем. Emil von Sydow; 15 июля 1812, Фрайберг — 13 октября 1873, Берлин) — немецкий географ и картограф. Преподавал географию и картографию в военной академии в Эрфурте, с 1867 г. главный картограф прусского Генерального штаба. Первым предложил цветовое решение для физических карт, в соответствии с которым более низменная местность отображается зелёным цветом, более возвышенная — жёлтыми цветами вплоть до коричневого (до фон Зюдова рельеф показывался на картах исключительно штриховкой). В 1842—1844 гг. выпустил основанный на собственных разработках «Методический атлас для научного исследования Земли» (нем. Methodischer Hand-Atlas für das wissenschaftliche Studium der Erdkunde, выдержавший множество переизданий сперва в оригинальном виде, а потом в редакции Германа Вагнера, сделанной в 1889 г. (в 1944 г. выпущено 23-е издание). «Школьный атлас» (нем. Schulatlas) фон Зюдова выдержал 28 изданий к 1876 году. Ему принадлежит также «Очерк общей географии» (нем. Grundriss der allgemeinen Geographie; 1862). (ru)

In 1870 he attained the rank of Colonel, and died three years later in Berlin due to cholera. He is considered to be the founder of methodical school cartography, and distinguished himself by creating his own wall maps for classroom instruction. In 1838 he produced a physical map of Asia in his "Schulmethodischer Wand Atlas" (Methodic Wall Atlas for Schools) that was soon followed by maps of other continents. On these maps, Sydow developed a color methodology for landscape features using hachures, where green was depicted for lowlands and brown used for highlands. Wilhelm Perthes (1793–1853) of the publishing firm "Justus Perthes Geographische Anstalt Gotha" was impressed with Sydow's work and in 1849 produced the latter's "Schulatlas in sechsunddreigig Karten" (Schoolatlas in 36 maps), a work that eventually ran to 39 editions by 1887. After Sydow's death, Hermann Wagner (1840-1929), a geography professor at Göttingen, designed the "Sydow-Wagner Methodischer Schulatlas" (Sydow-Wagner Methodical School Atlas) with 60 major and 50 inset maps.
