With Geographic Information System (GIS) software it is now possible to produce maps of a complexity, utility, and beauty beyond the vision and dreams of mapmakers only a few years ago. Here is a collection of the most impressive and innovative maps produced with this technology in the last year. A few examples of the maps that are included are: Storm Surge Locations for Hurricane Landfalls in Georgia; Virtual Reality Models of Lower Manhattan; Election Results in Russia; The Natural History of IceLand; and Common Snapping Turtle Telemetry Points in Wisconsin. Along with each map there is a description of the problem solved by the mapmaker, and the software, hardware, and data sources employed. This book is the most compelling demonstration of the range and analytical power of GIS mapmaking technology.
