Geographical information systems (GIS) & remote sensing
The second edition of a bestseller, this book focuses on map design theory and technique rather than map design tools. It highlights new tools and their capabilities through visual demonstrations and explanations of new techniques such as hexagonal binning, big data point density maps, scale dependent design considerations, 3D building modeling, and so on. The new edition will have a much heavier focus on digital cartography and its best practices. It has also been redesigned so that it can be used as a textbook with study questions and an end-of-chapter exercise.
