Methods chapters take a learn-by-doing approach to help students master application programming interfaces and build other technical skills for creating maps and making them available on the Internet. The companion website offers invaluable supplementary materials for instructors and students. Pedagogical features: End-of-chapter summaries, review questions, and exercises. Extensive graphics illustrating the concepts and procedures. Downloadable PowerPoints for each chapter. Downloadable code files (where applicable) for the exercises.
