Map Use: Reading, Analysis, Interpretation, eighth edition, is a comprehensive, foundational textbook designed for the college curriculum. Updated with a new chapter highlighting map design, including web maps, the new edition also adds information about what's going on with cartography today, including the use of imagery, remote sensing, and web concepts. 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 helps define key topics.
