Making Maps: A Visual Guide to Map Design for GIS, Third Edition by John Krygier and Denis Wood is a book that will appeal to both beginners and experienced GIS practitioners who are interested in learning more about map design. As the title suggests, the book takes a visual approach to exploring the best practices for making maps. Topics include map symbolization, map scales, map projections, and obtaining data. The visual examples that accompany the text will engage the reader. Krygier and Wood cleverly embed these lessons within a graphic–novel story about a group of people who want to create a map to address a community issue.
