Covers a lot of information regarding maps in general and GIS. I bought this for the first class of a graduate program I am taking.

It’s very much a textbook, which means it very thorough. But it’s a great companion to the course. I lived that this helped my friend Jean exactly what they needed to to access their class. This book was bound nicely. There weren’t any grammatical it spelling errors found. The price was good as well.

This is a great text book. Not much you can say about a textbook. Very comprehensive info in the book for how little is paid for it. Dry and boring, but I learned a lot from it.

Excellent and comprehensive beginners textbook on GIS.
