Acclaimed for its innovative use of visual material, this book is engaging, clear, and compelling-exactly how an effective map should be. Nearly every page is organized around maps and other figures (many in full color) that illustrate all aspects of map making, including instructive examples of both good and poor design choices. The book covers everything from locating and processing data to making decisions about layout, symbols, color, and type. Readers are invited to think critically about both the technical features and social significance of maps as they learn to create better maps of their own. New to This Edition Extensively revised and expanded core chapters on map design. An annotated map design exemplar is used to show how the concepts in each chapter play out on an actual map. Updated to reflect current technological developments. Larger size and redesigned pages make the book even more user friendly.
