Contents Notes
The big picture on design -- Type basics -- Effective type in map design -- Color basics -- Color decisions for mapping -- Customizing symbols -- Beyond default marginal elements. "Designing Better Maps is written specifically for people not trained in cartography who nonetheless need to create maps as part of their regular work. This book covers the essentials of sound map design, showing readers how to design better maps; design for purpose and audience; consider the relationship between resolution and viewing distance; select appropriate fonts and symbols; choose intuitive colors that serve the content; arrange scale bars, legends, and other map elements into organized layouts; and choose and apply appropriate export options."--Jacket.
