Frederick John Salmon (1882 - July 8, 1964) was a British surveyor, foreign service officer, and soldier. He served in the Ceylon Survey from 1908 through 1930, with the exception of serving on the Western Front during World War I. During the war, he made a name for himself by promoting cooperation between surveying and artillery. He was also particularly enthusiastic about printing and distributing updated maps and using aerial photography to update tactical maps. He became a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in December 1918. Between 1930 and 1933, Salmon directed the Lands and Survey Departments in Cyprus, but was named Director of the Palestine Survey at the end of 1932. He began work at the Survey of Palestine on March 27, 1933, and began an initiative to begin a modern topographical mapping of Palestine. He was appointed Commissioner for Lands and Surveys of Palestine and as a member of the Advisory Council to the Government of Palestine in 1935. After a thirty-year career surveying sites around the Empire, Salmon retired on July 13, 1938. His cartographic work is part of the collection at the Royal Geographical Society.
