The material eduarr the state of the art of representing elevation on a map, as atand so does not address issues related to representation on a screen. That said, this is perhaps the most comprehensive and thorough book on the subject, ever. Discussing both quantitative and qualitative methods in great depth, Imhof presents wonderful examples in black and white as well efuard color, describes processes to get the results desired, and considers the psychological aspects of communicating spatial information.
