Abstract : A scheme for presenting and interpreting the 230 space groups is developed. The scheme is based on the addition of symmetry operations to translation operations in conformance with the symmetry requirements of the seven crystal systems. The stepwise development from crystal systems to space groups is traced in the report and centerfold chart. Complete notes on deciphering the space group symbols and for correlating the Schoenflies and the International systems of abbreviations are included. (Author)
