    Recognized as the classic resource in cartography, this text continues to integrate the latest modern technology with traditional cartographic principles. The balanced author team provides a solid conceptual foundation in the basic principles of cartography while introducing the newest technological advances which have greatly altered modern cartographic techniques. New features include a complete updating of topical data and a shift in emphasis from ``small-scale to all-scale maps.'' Systematic coverage is given to both theory and applications with all basic mapmaking tools presented including formulas, tables and constants.

    Arthur Robinson is arguably the century's most well-known and respected researcher in cartography. Currently the L. Martin Professor Emeritus of Cartography at the University of Wisconsin, his research activities have helped bring a theoretical orientation to what too many believed was simply a practical tool for geographers. Whether through his classic introductory text in cartography, his handbook on mapping terms, or his book on the "nature of maps," Robinson has helped redefine cartographic communication. By the late 1980s, his world map projection---the "Robinson projection"---had been widely adopted throughout the world as the best example of a map of the world that minimized continental distortions, particularly in the polar regions.

    A. Jon Kimerling is professor emeritus of geosciences at Oregon State University in Corvallis. He coauthoredElements of Cartography, sixth edition (Wiley, 1995).   Aileen R. Buckley is a research cartographer for Esri. Phillip C. Muehrcke is professor emeritus of geography at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Juliana O. Muehrcke is the founding editor of the journalNonprofit World.
