This work examines how map design is integrated with modern views of information and graphic communication in both the applied and theoretical senses. Some of the world's most eminent cartographers discuss the "grammar" and "syntax" of the cartographic language in light of recent theoretical, practical and technological developments. The book examines the perceptual processes involved and the opportunities opened up by new technology, as well as maps for special purposes such as for the visually impaired, or children. Applications of original research into map use and understanding are included plus the special topic of "interactive" and "live" maps.
