The paper relates to hologram synthesis from 2-D transparencies. A synthetic field hologram, that is, a synthetic hologram with the diffraction efficiency unimpaired by the number of basic holograms overlapping each other on a synthetic field hologram, is presented. This hologram may be reconstructed in white light. The hologram and method of its creation can be used for making holographic land maps.
