US: Research and Markets has announced the addition of ‘Mapping: A Critical Introduction to Cartography and GIS’ in its offering. This report has been prepared by John Wiley and Sons Ltd. It is an introduction to the critical issues surrounding mapping and GIS across a wide range of disciplines for non-specialist readers.
The report examines the key influences GIS and cartography have on the study of geography and other related disciplines, represents the first in-depth summary of the new cartography that has appeared since the early 1990s, provides an explanation of what this new critical cartography is, why it is important and how it is relevant to a broad, interdisciplinary set of readers, presents theoretical discussion supplemented with real-world case studies and brings together both a technical understanding of GIS and mapping as well as sensitivity to the importance of theory.
