In the ten years since the last edition of this classic reference, developments in digital mapping systems, map production, and map availability have been immense. Maps and digitized data today provide information for a broad range of applications -- from business to the military to leisure activities. Substantially rewritten to take full account of the exciting changes in production and technique, World Mapping Today not only reviews the current state of the art worldwide, but grapples with the problems and possibilities of map and data acquisition in the electronic age. Textual descriptions of digital cartography within individual countries are complemented by catalogue sections that encompass a broad range of material -- both topographic and thematic -- produced by government and commercial map makers. The lists of publishers' addresses now include telephone and fax numbers, e-mail addresses, and the URLs of useful web sites.
