First X, Then Y, Now Z: An Introduction to Landmark Thematic Maps
A thematic map may highlight an historic walking tour, locate where to find the cheapest gas, or identify global warming hotspots. Though the topics are endless, their geographical presentations will usually be visually interesting and intuitive. How, where, and when did this genre of cartography develop? This beautifully designed book introduces viewers to the early history of thematic mapping through both quantitative and qualitative examples. Shown in full color are early thematic maps in various disciplines, such as meteorology, geology. hydrography, natural history, medicine, and sociology/economics. Also, a selection of more fanciful, “theme” maps, on literary subjects, love/marriage, and utopia, are included.
