Author does an Cartography MOOC course through Esri, Awesome Course, Awesome Book!
Mr. Field and his colleagues did a wonderful job on a Esri MOOC Cartography course I took last year. This book is so informative, colorful, and brilliantly written. It is not a boring book, as subjects are explained there are plenty of beautiful pictures, images, and more to look at. This book is a keeper! I am not finished reading it yet, but no complaints. Every cartographer should have this book in their library.
Good Content. Poor Print Quality.
The content is top notch but the print quality is poor (blurry), diminishing reader experience. If I could rate the content separate from the print quality, I would give 5 stars for content and 1 star for printing.
Not just for mapmakers.
Want to make a map? This is the place the start.
Want to learn how to display information clearly? This is the book for you.
Want to see amazing examples of maps and data presently clearly? See them here.
Loved the book.
Whether you are a map maker or a map lover, this book is a fantastic deep dive manual of cartography in the digital era. There is so much to learn about the craft of map making, anyone interested in the subject will find this to be an enormously useful resource.
A book about cartographic design should, of course, be well designed - Cartography is a beautiful book that would grace the coffee table of anyone interested in the subject! You might even find your friends browsing through it and developing an interest :)
Hands down, the best Esri book I've ever purchased. It's packed with tons of cartographic techniques, advice, and examples. Definitely doesn't lack for content.
