Cartographer's Toolkit

Map Making Tips, Tricks, and Inspiration

The Books at the Esri User Conference

August 1st, 2014

Cartographer’s Toolkit was in the top 50 books sold at the Esri UC out of 236 titles on display there. Cartography is usually considered a niche even in the world of GIS. So this means that we are getting a lot more people on board with the “make better maps” mantra. I’m thrilled with this result.

Also, the funniest thing happened. One of the books that Esri ordered for the conference, and only 1 out of an entire box, had the cover of a different book on it! What do you think? It’s a beautiful cover and now I’m wishing–if only it were a little more map oriented–that it really was the cover for Cartographer’s Toolkit. :) The inside is the real inside to the book, only the cover is wrong.

Wrong cover, correct insides
