New Books

February 24th, 2011

I’ve just noticed a slew of new books on the market that seem like they’d be a great fit for cartographers. They are in my cart on Amazon because I haven’t quite finished the three books I’ve got on the nightstand right now. Just by way of explanation – those tutorial books are great and I always feel like every once in a while I should skim through books like that in case there’s something new that I haven’t been aware of.

On nightstand now, i.e., still plowing through:

Visualizing Data Patterns with Micromaps


GIS Tutorial 2


GIS Tutorial 3

Hopefully on nightstand soon, i.e., when the other three are all read or at least skimmed:

Designing with the Mind in Mind


Living with Complexity
