Description

Elements of Cartography, 6e will be a vastly updated text that will continue its reputation as the market leader by integrating the latest in modern technology with traditional cartographic principles. As such, Robinson 6e will replace existing traditional texts like Clare (PH) that cover automated cartography, but give little attention to cartographic principles and concepts relating to design, symbol selection, etc.
