Mapping Human and Natural Systems covers our increasingly digital world - internet communications, cloud computing, etc., and how our ability to quickly and visually communicate is becoming increasingly important. The book provides the reader with a ready reference to learn about map creation and interpretation and to help them better interact with, and construct, maps. There are several software systems available that focus on maps and mapping, but no single resource that covers the fundamentals of mapping. This book fills that need.

  • Presents unique reflections, diversions, inspections and translations to encourage critical thinking skills
  • Includes a companion site to enhance the reflections, diversions, inspections and translations with additional resources
  • Provides examples and discussions from seasoned natural resource professionals with over 80 years of combined professional experience
