Cartographic design: theoretical and practical perspectives
The first book to examine how map design is integrated with modern views of information & graphic communication in both the applied & theoretical senses. Some of the world's most eminent cartographers discuss the "grammer" & "syntax" of the cartographic language in light of recent theoretical, practical & technological developments. This title examines the perceptual processes involved in & the opportunities opened up by new technology, as well as maps for special purposes such as for the visually impaired or children. Applications of original research into map use & understanding are included plus the special topic of "interactive" & "live" maps.
