  Cartography: Thematic Map Design

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. A CD-ROM containing 120-day time-limited version of ArcView GIS, including text specific exercises, is packaged free with every text. In addition, a Map Projection Poster is also included free of charge.

  Colour Basics for GIS Users

This concise guide to color for GIS users provides practical background information on how color is perceived and generated, whether on screen, by plotting or printing, or through commercial offset printing. Clear explanations of color spaces and the characteristics of both input and output devices can help GIS users more intelligently use the cartographic tools in ArcGIS and ArcView to obtain more predictable and pleasing results. Information on the use of color charts, hints for color selection for screen or print display, a list of references in print and online, and a glossary of graphics file formats make this a handy addition to a GIS user's library.
  Elements of Cartography

Recognized as the classic resource in cartography, this text continues to integrate the latest modern technology with traditional cartographic principles. The balanced author team provides a solid conceptual foundation in the basic principles of cartography while introducing the newest technological advances which have greatly altered modern cartographic techniques. New features include a complete updating of topical data and a shift in emphasis from "small-scale to all-scale maps."

  GIS Modeling in Raster

The primary focus of this text is on the process of cartographic modeling and GIS modeling. The text goes beyond cartographic modeling to incorporate supplementary or complementary technologies and logics to show that spatio-temporal modeling is not limited to cartographic modeling, nor to Map Algebra. DeMers consistent, friendly and engaging style has been highly praised by reviewers of this title as well as users of his market leading Fundamentals of Geographic Information Systems.

  How to Lie with Maps

Originally published to wide acclaim, this lively, cleverly illustrated essay on the use and abuse of maps teaches us how to evaluate maps critically and promotes a healthy skepticism about these easy-to-manipulate models of reality. Monmonier shows that, despite their immense value, maps lie. In fact, they must.

  Infinite Perspectives: Two Thousand Years of Three-Dimensional Mapmaking

Infinite Perspectives traces the artistic and scientific evolution of topographic representation from its origins to the present. Over 80 vivid color plates of some of the most significant maps ever made detail important advances in the portrayal of three dimensions in map form. The final section of the book contains 20 plates presenting a revolutionary cartographic technique that allows viewers wearing ordinary 3D glasses to view planetary surfaces without distortion. This invention, developed by the authors with Dr. Russell Ambroziak and named Infinite Perspective Projection, is currently in use by NASA and the Department of Defense.

  Map Use and Analysis

This book is designed to serve as an introduction to the fascinating world of maps. It explains how to use maps to obtain information about a wide variety of topics. Throughout the book, maps are viewed in a broad framework. Thus, the discussion includes mental maps, aerial photographs, remotely sensed images, computer-assisted cartography, and geographical information systems, in addition to traditional printed maps. The writing style is neither formalistic nor casual, with an emphasis on clarity of explanation. The discussions assume that the reader has no specific prior knowledge of the topic, so that even novice map users can understand and use the information and techniques presented.

  Map Use: Reading, Analysis, Interpretation

A useful source for explanations of what maps are and how best to use them. Major sections deal with how to read maps (including a section on maps on the Internet) and how to understand the technical underpinnings of maps; there are appendixes on scale, remote sensing, projections, navigation instruments, and tables.


A comprehensive history of cartography that traces the adventures, discoveries and feats of technical ingenuity by which man has succeeded in mapping the globe, moon and the planets.

  New Nature of Maps: Essays in the History of Cartography

In this collection of essays, J. B. Harley (1932-1991) draws on ideas in art history, literature, philosophy, and the study of visual culture to subvert the traditional, "positivist" model of cartography, replacing it with one that is grounded in an iconological and semiotic theory of the nature of maps. He defines a map as a "social construction" and argues that maps are not simple representations of reality but exert profound influences upon the way space is conceptualized and organized.
