How maps work: Representation, visualization, and design
A. M. MacEachren 1995 Guilford Press New York

The book discusses how maps are used and how they can be improved. Understanding how and why maps work and do not work as representations of the world, and what it means for a map to work, are critical as the world shifts towards visual presentations of information. The goal of this book is to provide a foundation for building this understanding.
