This revised and updated edition integrates the latest in modern technology with traditional cartographic principles. While providing a solid conceptual foundation in cartographic methodology, the text also introduces the very latest advances that have greatly influenced cartographic techniques. The new edition reflects the increasing importance of cartography as the basis for further geographical study, the authors updating the original content and including three new chapters; Atlases, Mapping Time, and Exploratory Cartography. There will also be a more widespread emphasis on multimedia and the web, and the new edition has a companion website that will provide OHPs, show dynamics, provide an instructors manual and demonstrate more advanced cartographic techniques.

Clear, up-to-date coverage of methods for analyzing geographical information in a GIS context Geographic Information Analysis presents clear and up-to-date coverage of the foundations of spatial analysis in a geographic information systems environment. Focusing on the universal aspects of spatial data and their analysis, this book covers the scientific assumptions and limitations of methods available in many geographic information systems. Throughout, the fundamental idea of a map as a realization of a spatial stochastic process is central to the discussion. Key spatial concepts are covered, including point pattern, line objects and networks, area objects, and continuous fields. Analytical techniques for each of these are addressed, as are methods for combining maps, exploring multivariate data, and performing computationally intensive analysis. Appendixes provide primers on basic statistics and linear algebra using matrices. Complete with chapter objectives, summaries, "thought exercises," a wealth of explanatory diagrams, and an annotated bibliography, Geographic Information Analysis is a practical book for students, as well as a valuable resource for researchers and professionals in the industry.

Fireworks erupt over Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana Beach on December 31, delighting the hundreds of thousands of people who have come to celebrate both the Feast of lemanja and New Year's Eve. Reflecting Brazil's cultural diversity, this traditional spectacle combines native, African, and Christian beliefs and rituals. Clad in blue and white, the colors of lemanja, the goddess of all waters, celebrants cast offerings into the water just before midnight, asking lemanja for her protection and blessing. The oferendas includes flowers, food, candles, and perfume. At the stroke of midnight, fireworks explode overhead, and the throngs sing and dance to celebrate the new year. Book jacket.
