Book Title: How maps work : representation, visualization, and design

Author: MacEachren, Alan M

Book Description:

The book How Maps Work, written by our best Penn State geographer, Alan M. MacEachren, provides a fascinating synthesis on the perceptual, cognitive, and metaphysical aspects of spatial information, and is highly influential in academic cartography and geographic information science. My reading of this book and interactions with the author in the last few years have sparked great my passion in developing human-centered geospatial information technologies, and have profoundly reshaped my personal teaching and research scholarship. This book will continue to be highly valued and serve as a foundation stone in my academic life.
