“Peterson's book is both a primer on enduring principles of cartography and a hands-on, down-and-dirty guide to the mashups, scripts, tools, and work-arounds that are the new playing field of 21st-century cartography. This text offers the keys to geo-enabled Web maps, database searches, Web design, and cloud computing. Peterson uses such simple and clear explanations of what to do that readers will be surprised by how painlessly they reach the giddy heights of web coding. For those who love maps—and also love coding, scripting, and making cool stuff happen on the Web—this book is your jumping-off point.”

—Keith Clarke, PhD, Department of Geography, University of California, Santa Barbara


“Peterson successfully covers a mix of theory and practical applications. Each chapter is built on solid cartographic principles, but the text's real distinctiveness is how those principles are connected to today's technologies. A welcome addition to the literature on cartography and GIS Science, this is an excellent text for classes in computer mapping, cartography and GIS visualization, or Web mapping application development.”

—Jeffrey S. Torguson, PhD, Department of Geography and Planning, St. Cloud State University


“A seminal contribution to the rapidly expanding field of Internet and Web-based mapping. The text is written at a level that can be grasped by beginning students but can also help professionals learn the details of Internet mapping operations. Peterson provides detailed examples of map creation and use and guides the reader to design, develop, and implement Web-based mapping projects.”

—E. Lynn Usery, PhD, Research Geographer and Director, Center of Excellence for Geospatial Information Science, U.S. Geological Survey, Rolla, Missouri


“This text provides access to an exciting new world and grounds the reader in important concepts. Alternating chapters cover theoretical and practical aspects of making effective online maps. The book is rich in ideas, illustrations, and examples of codes that will soon have the reader creating accessible, interesting, and useful maps.”

—Patrick Kennelly, PhD, Department of Earth and Environmental Science, Long Island University
