Product details

Product description

From the Back Cover

About the Cover: The cover illustration was made by combining three different U.S. Geological Survey digital data sets: a black and white digital orthophotograph, a digital elevation model, and a digital raster image of a topographic map. The observer viewpoint is at an altitude of 1200’ above the surface, in the vicinity of Massanutten Mountain, just east of Harrisonburg, VA. The colored lines and areas from the topographic map are transparent so that when combined, the underlying imagery is visible. These data sets are then draped over a surface generated from the digital elevation data. The cover illustrates the flexibility available to the cartographer in creating graphics using computer technology and digital data sets.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little outdated, but good overall review of the profession/subject as a while 3 Mar. 2014

A little old and outdated, but it did the job. It explained what my professor didn't. Good book for beginners or those that do not understand what cartography is. I kept the book. I found it to be too informative and valuable to sell.

It's a book about map making. I never would have guessed the amount of thought and information necessary to make decisions about what I put in my work. This book lays out every little detail.

Is a very good book for help to teachers in cartography classroom. Good examples. Goods ilustrations. Good structure. Althoug is a old book is updated. Its have a part for GIS and not forget the traditional cartography process. Just a problem that I can see, its not have a luxurous edition althoug the price is high.
