About this book

Appropriate for either a one or two-semester undergraduate course in Cartography. This comprehensive book bridges the evolution in cartography by presenting both traditional methods and recently developed cartographic techniques. It provides a compendium of methods for symbolizing and visualizing spatial data, from the traditional methods that presume a communication model to computer-based techniques that provide a means of data visualization.
