  • The King's Two Mapsby Daniel Birkholz

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 54.95

    While a culture may have a dominant way of "mapping," its geography is always plural, and there is always competition among conceptions of space.

This book chronicles the specific... more...

  • The Mapmakers' Questby David Buisseret

    Oxford University Press 2003; US$ 35.99

    In 1400 Europe was behind large parts of the world in its understanding of the use of maps. For instance, the people gf China and of Japan were considerably more advanced in this respect. And yet, by 1600 the Europeans had come to use maps for a huge variety of tasks, and were far ahead of the rest of the world in their appreciation of the power and... more...

    University of Minnesota Press 1996; US$ 42.00

  • Mapping Latin Americaby Jordana Dym; Karl Offen

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 31.00

    For many, a map is nothing more than a tool used to determine the location or distribution of something?a country, a city, or a natural resource. But maps reveal much more: to really read a map means to examine what it shows and what it doesn?t, and to ask who made it, why, and for whom. The contributors to this new volume ask these sorts of questions... more...

  • Scotland: Mapping the Nationby Chris Fleet; Margaret Wilkes; Charles W.J. Withers

    Birlinn 2013; US$ 15.21

  • GISby David R. Green

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 45.95

    In a relatively short time Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have spread from being primarily a research tool to higher and subsequently secondary education, and from the researcher to the user.
