The new edition of this best-selling textbook reflects the increasing importance of cartography as the basis for geographical analysis. The book has been thoroughly updated, and is further enhanced through integration of the latest developments in cartography in chapters on atlases and geovisualization.

The text places particular emphasis on the role of maps in the geospatial data infrastructure, and its link to multimedia and the web.

FEATURES

* New chapters on atlases and geovisualization, integrating the latest developments in cartography.

* Four, full-colour plate sections.

* Clear, concise writing style.

* Superb range of highly effective explanatory diagrams.

* Examples based on real-world cases, international in scope, and directly relevant to current studies.

* A comprehensive and up-to-date overview of a fast-moving subject that includes: 3D, animation, electronic atlases, data analysis and exploration, as well as multimedia and virtual reality.
