Abstract. The role of Gauss and Krüger is made clear in developing Gauss-Krüger projection. Gauss developed the projection and Krüger had brought Gauss’s posthumous work into the open. From studying such historical issues, useful projection formula was found and this is now implemented for actual usage in surveying in Japan.
