Map Use: Reading, Analysis, Interpretation, seventh edition, is a comprehensive, foundational textbook designed for the college curriculum. Now updated with a new section on map interpretation, Map Use provides students with the knowledge and skills to read and understand maps, and offers professional cartographers a thorough reference resource. Nearly 600 full-color maps, photographs, and graphs illustrate the concepts behind communicating with maps, while an extensive glossary and resource DVD for instructors (lecture slides, lab exercises, and answer keys) further support use of the text in the classroom. The book renders basic cartographic principles accessible to all, from students of cartography and map design to those without a formal education in geography. Accommodating new developments in GPS and geographic information system technology (GIS), this newest edition could serve as an introductory GIS text as well.
