Summary

This introductory textbook introduces students to the different types of map projections, map design, and map production.Cartography is generally a sophomore or junior level course for geography majors and many professors are beginning to introduce computer cartography throughout the course.

New to This Edition:

  • Revision of the graphing chapter (18) which was new in the fourth edition.
  • Updates in techniques, technology, references, and the treatment of color usage in maps.
  • New chapter covering Cartographical GIS.
  • Coverage of Map Design Process and Total Map Organization were previously covered in two chapters have now been shortened and combined into one chapter.
