About this item
Expanded and with fully updated illustrations and data, Designing Better Maps: A Guide for GIS Users, second edition, is a comprehensive reference guide that breaks down the myriad decisions regarding color, font, and symbology that must be made to create maps that effectively communicate the intended message of the mapmaker. Author and reknowned cartographer Cynthia Brewer demystifies the basics of good cartography, guiding readers through layout design, scales, projections, color selection, font choices, and symbol placement in both digital and print mediums. Recognizing the need for integration with current publishing and design programs, the text also covers various export options, all of which lead to the creation of industry standard, publication-worthy maps. The book also includes an appendix describing the author's popular ColorBrewer application, an online color selection tool.
