Editorial Reviews

Review

Designing Better Maps is a well-illustrated book with concisely but excellently written explanations on all the basic mapping considerations. It needs to have a place in the library of all new cartographers and is also worth a look by experienced cartographers who seek a refresher and a few new tips. Gretchen N. Peterson, Author of Cartographer s Toolkit"
