Abstract: In this paper we study the affine Gauss maps of nondegenerate surfaces in $ {\mathbb{R}^4}$ with respect to the Burstin-Mayer normalization (1927) and with respect to the normalization obtained by Nomizu and the first author in 1993. We determine up to affine transformations all surfaces in $ {\mathbb{R}^4}$ with constant affine Gauss maps.
