This book does an excellent job in explaining many of the concepts and principles involved in map design.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has not been trained as a cartographer but who needs to develop effective maps as part of their job responsibilities.
I found this book to be a very practical and easy to read guide for understanding the elements of good map design.
Exactly what I was looking for. Well organized, easy to understand, and my favorite aspect is the author challenges your creativity. I am very pleased with my purchase.Published 10 months ago by mark loseth
