Destroying the Art of Cartography: Teaching Illustrations Using ArcView.
Hill, Miriam Helen
Introductory courses in Geographic Information Systems and cartography cover the fundamentals of map design. Students are given guidelines for producing a good map, but visual demonstrations are much more impressive. ArcView was used to produce illustrations of bad mapping practices and placed in a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation to demonstrate poor cartographic design. This booklet consists of a choropleth map showing the total number of registered automobiles, 33 variations of this map, and descriptions of common map layout and design errors. (BT)
