I have written / edited several books

My latest book Mapping Time: Illustrated by Minard’s Map of Napoleon’s Russian Campaign of 1812. It contains my views on how one could map changes. It is pubished by Esri Press 2014.

 

Together with my colleague Ferjan Ormeling I have written a textbook on Cartography: Cartography – visualization of spatial data. It started with a dutch version, followed by several english editions and translations in Polish, Russian, Indonesian and recently in Chinese.
