Cartographers Toolkit: Colors, Typography, Patterns

Cartographer's Toolkit is like a big cheat-sheet for cartography. Its three chapters: Colors, Typography, and Composition Patterns build from individual map components to cohesive cartographic constructions. Each chapter begins with a brief introduction explaining relevant theory, key definitions, and usage suggestions. The pages that follow each introduction provide an abundance of visual demonstrations that are the basis for the tools in the toolkit. The book contains: Colors: 30 color palettes of 10 colors each, in 3 categories: coordinated palettes, color ramps, and differentiated; Typography: 50 typefaces showcased in 3 categories: standard, free, and for-fee; and Composition Patterns: 28 patterns, illustrated with 36 maps by many of today's leading cartographers. Here you will find design tools for the advanced cartographer--and those who wish to become advanced cartographers--for producing the high-level static and interactive maps required in our current innovative environment. The information presented in this book, along with the more fundamental cartography theory in the author's first book, GIS Cartography: A Guide to Effective Map Design, equips cartographers with the tools they need to perform at the top of the map making field, producing maps that are informative, inspired, and original.
