Until now, the field has lacked a concise, down-to-earth guide for people who must make effective maps using GIS. Making Maps is visually engaging, clear, and compelling - exactly how maps should be if they are to meet your goals. Featuring over 300 maps and other figures, including instructive examples of both good and poor design choices, the book covers everything from locating and processing data to making decisions about layout, map symbols, color, and type. For students, professionals, and others who want to make better maps, this is an essential, uniquely helpful resource.

Review:

'This detailed guide to elementary mapping in the age of digital information, Internet resources, and geographic information systems is simple, clear, and comprehensive. The book's lucid style and dramatic, apposite, and often funny illustrations make it a novel and effective resource in a culture where the map is a ubiquitous presence. More than an instruction manual on making maps, it is also a guide to their critical reading and interpretation. Making Maps will be invaluable for users as well as creators of maps at the university level and beyond.' - Denis Cosgrove, Department of Geography, University of California, Los Angeles
