The theory and art of map making developed over several thousand years and has recently been revolutionized by computer technology.

GIS software is used in a series of hands-on lab exercises to produce typical GIS mapping products. Emphasis is placed on reader perception of map design elements and also includes an introduction to appropriate software tools and application of concepts through lab exercises.
