The eighth edition of Map Use: Reading, Analysis, Interpretation is being released even as the NACIS 2016 meeting is being held! For decades, Map Use has served as a comprehensive, foundational companion for college-level students and instructors, for professionals in a variety of fields where maps are important, and also for casual map users. This new edition fully integrates advancements in GIS, GPS, remote sensing, and web mapping into the text throughout all the chapters. It includes a new chapter highlighting map design. New to this edition, too, are almost 50 new figures, as well as an expanded glossary that defines key terms and topics. It is also available in e-book format allowing us to also include links to online maps, animations, and web sites, thus expanding the examples and resources the book offers. This presentation describes the rationale for and challenges of making the eighth edition of Map Use.
