The technological revolution of recent years has transformed both cartographic theory and practice. This new edition has been significantly revised and modified, to reflect the dynamic developments that have taken place in the decade since Volume 2 was first published.
The work has been enhanced by new international contributions and is, in particular, a tribute to present day German-language cartography, allowing a wider audience to benefit from the expertise available in Germany and Switzerland. A chapter on Marketing illustrates the talents of the North American cartographic community in this increasingly important area.

The text provides clear explanations, using both written materials and a wealth of graphics, of current practices relating to map generation.
