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 30 color palettes of 10 colors each, 50 typefaces showcased in 3 categories, and 28 map composition 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.

Gretchen Peterson is a well-known geospatial professional who has run her own GIS consulting firm, PetersonGIS, since 2001.

Her extensive experience with geographic analysis and mapping forms the baseline for the knowledge she shares in her publications on maps and cartography. Peterson shares her thoughts about cartography and the geospatial field regularly on her blog and via her @PetersonGIS twitter account
