Atlases and GIS Map Books

  • Cartographica Extraordinaire
    The Historical Map Transformed
    Handsomely illustrated, this large-format, hardcover atlas brings together a collection of extraordinary historical maps, some of which have been uniquely enhanced with modern GIS technology, from the private collection of David Rumsey. The maps selected for Cartographica Extraordinaire: The Historical Map Transformed tell distinct stories along two main themes which explore how continental wilderness become a civilisation and how the development of cartographic science changed the ways we perceive, describe, study, and use that land. Featured maps not only describe the vivid history of North and South America from the early exploration of the New World to Lewis and Clark?s opening of the American West, but also bridge the gap between historical cartography and the technologically advanced applications of GIS.
