Summary
A lavishly illustrated reference guide, Cartography by Kenneth Field is an inspiring and creative companion along the nonlinear journey toward designing a great map. This compendium for contemporary mapmaking distils the essence of cartography into useful topics, organized alphabetically, for convenience in finding the specific method or subject you need. Unlike books targeted toward deep scholarly discourse of cartographic theory, this book provides sound, visually compelling information that translates into practical ideas for modern mapmaking. At the intersection of science and art, Cartography serves as a guidepost for designing an accurate and effective map and makes a strong statement about the worth of cartography and cartographic thinking
