Descrizione articolo


Concerning the history and making of pictorial maps, a graphic form found increasingly in today's newspapers, magazines and television reporting, this book includes new Robinson projections that have solved many distortion problems, the computer's role in mapmaking and pictorial symbols. It begins with a history of pictorial maps through the ages, the use of pictorial maps in America, in the world, in war and news coverage and in weather reporting. The second half of the book concetrates on the mapmaking process itself in which Holmes shows how to achieve the various kinds of map projections in the age-old struggle to find a satisfactory way to show the entire surface of a 3-dimensional sphere on a a flat piece of paper. Included are the new Robinson projections that have solved many distortional problems, the computer's role in mapmaking, how to represent mountainous terrain convincingly, pictorial symbols used in maps and how to draw maps for friends.
