Recommended: A Research Guide to Cartographic Resources: Print and Electronic Sources was developed to help people "researching cartographic-related resources" and developing cartographic collections to learn about maps and geospatial materials. The book provides introductory information about geospatial resources in 18 chapters: atlases, maps, nautical charts, aerial photos, GIS data, handbooks and manuals, dictionaries, bibliographies, and gazetteers. It includes a directory of cartographic collections and a list of professional map and GIS. Some of the text and resource lists could be useful to librarians unfamiliar with cartographic and geospatial information. Recommended for comprehensive cartographic research collections. * CHOICE *
The variety of geographic information about North America can be overwhelming. Dodsworth's herculean effort to cull together in one volume all these materials, sources, resources, and information agencies will now allow novice and proficient seekers to swiftly navigate through the sea of cartographic resources and geospatial data. -- Wade Bishop, Associate Professor, School of Information Sciences, University of Tennessee-Knoxville
