Esri Publishes Mark Monmonier Book on Exploring Maps as Networks

Esri has announced the publication of the latest book by famed cartographer Mark Monmonier, Connections and Content: Reflections on Networks and the History of Cartography.

Monmonier, Distinguished Professor of Geography at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, explained the premise of his book: “Maps as networks [make] an ideal theme, or leitmotif, for teaching and understanding the historical development of modern cartography, which evolved with the aid of mathematics and electronic computation from a clever integration of telescopes, rulers, and spirit levels to its present-day dependence on satellites, computers, databases, telecom links, and lidar.”

In a fascinating exploration of synchronous weather maps, the advent of political redistricting by cartographic surgery, and more, Connections and Content advances the network as a unifying concept for understanding and using maps.

Connections and Content: Reflections on Networks and the History of Cartography is available in print (ISBN: 9781589485594, 290 pages, US$39.99) and as an e-book (ISBN: 9781589485600, US$39.99). Both editions can be obtained from most online retailers worldwide. The print edition is also available for purchase at esri.com/esripress or by calling 1-800-447-9778.
