Making Maps, Third Edition: A Visual Guide to Map Design for GIS – 3rd Edition (Ebook PDF)
Author: John Krygier (Author), Denis Wood (Author)
Lauded for its accessibility and beautiful design, this text has given thousands of students and professionals the tools to create effective, compelling maps. Using a wealth of illustrations–with 74 in full color–to elucidate each concisely presented point, the revised and updated third edition continues to emphasize how design choices relate to the reasons for making a map and its intended purpose. All components of map making are covered: titles, labels, legends, visual hierarchy, font selection, how to turn phenomena into visual data, data organization, symbolization, and more. Innovative pedagogical features include a short graphic novella, good design/poor design map examples, end-of-chapter suggestions for further reading, and an annotated map exemplar that runs throughout the book.
