- D.R.F. Taylor, Department of Geography, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada K1S 5B6
Technological changes are revolutionising cartography and there is a growing convergence between geographic information systems and computer assisted cartography. This book describes in detail the relationship between geographic information systems and modern cartography and considers all aspects from data collection to presentation and applications. Written by some of the world's leading cartographers, the book examines the emergence of electronic mapping systems and stresses both analysis and visualisation.
For senior undergraduates, graduates and practitioners in geography, cartography, surveying and regional and urban planning.
