This is a reproduction of the 1982 English translation (with minor changes) of Imhof's classic 1965 book. The material considers the state of the art of representing elevation on a map, as at 1965, and 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 as color, describes processes to get the results desired, and considers the psychological aspects of communicating spatial information. Highly recommended as a resource for everyone interested in cartography and communicating spatial information.
