Esri : Publishes Mark Monmonier Book on Exploring Maps as Networks

09/26/2019 | 08:10am EST

New History of Cartography Examines How Modern Methods Evolved

Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced the publication of the latest book by famed cartographer Mark Monmonier, Connections and Content: Reflections on Networks and the History of Cartography.

Monmonier, Distinguished Professor of Geography at Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, explained the premise of his book: "Maps as networks [make] an ideal theme, or leitmotif, for teaching and understanding the historical development of modern cartography, which evolved with the aid of mathematics and electronic computation from a clever integration of telescopes, rulers, and spirit levels to its present-day dependence on satellites, computers, databases, telecom links, and lidar."

In a fascinating exploration of synchronous weather maps, the advent of political redistricting by cartographic surgery, and more, Connections and Content advances the network as a unifying concept for understanding and using maps.

Connections and Content: Reflections on Networks and the History of Cartography is available in print (ISBN: 9781589485594, 290 pages, US$39.99) and as an e-book (ISBN: 9781589485600, US$39.99). Both editions can be obtained from most online retailers worldwide. The print edition is also available for purchase at esri.com/esripress or by calling 1-800-447-9778.
