Map Use: Reading, Analysis, Interpretation, seventh edition, is a comprehensive, foundational textbook designed for the college curriculum. Now updated with a new section on map interpretation, Map Use provides students with the knowledge and skills to read and understand maps, and offers professional cartographers a thorough reference resource. Nearly 600 full-color maps, photographs, and graphs illustrate the concepts behind communicating with maps, while an extensive glossary and resource DVD for instructors (lecture slides, lab exercises, and answer keys) further support use of the text in the classroom. The book renders basic cartographic principles accessible to all, from students of cartography and map design to those without a formal education in geography. Accommodating new developments in GPS and geographic information system technology, this newest edition could serve as an introductory GIS text as well.
The Leadership GPS uses the inspiring story of Brian Alden in a turn-by-turn guide to becoming a successful leader. A member of the Millennial Generation, Brian is highly educated and wants to change the world, but when he finds himself in his first leadership role, he realizes he is short on experience. The head of his division is retiring and his manager is disinterested in training or development-so who can he rely on for direction? Denis McLaughlin invites you to join Brian on his leadership journey as an unexpected mentor guides him on the paths of successful leaders from the past.
In August 1995 an international symposium on "Quasiconformal Mappings and Analysis" was held in Ann Arbor on the occasion of Professor Fred- erick W. Gehring's 70th birthday and his impending retirement from the Mathematics Department at the University of Michigan. The concept of the symposium was to feature broad survey talks on a wide array of topics related to Gehring's basic research contributions in the field of quasicon- formal mappings, emphasizing their relations to other parts of analysis. Principal speakers were Kari Astala, Albert Baernstein, Clifford Earle, Pe- ter Jones, Irwin Kra, OUi Lehto, Gaven Martin, Dennis Sullivan, and Jussi Vaisala. Financial support was provided by the National Science Founda- tion, with additional grants from the University of Michigan and from the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications. The symposium was a great success. The speakers rose to the occasion and presented excellent survey lectures. The present volume was conceived as a means for disseminating those expositions to a wider audience. Ad- ditional mathematicians, some of whom had not been able to attend the symposium, were invited to contribute similar articles. The result is a fit- ting tribute to Fred Gehring's pre-eminent role in developing the theory of quasiconformal mappings, through his own research and writings and lec- tures, and through his supervision of graduate students. The volume begins with descriptions of Gehring's mathematical career and an overview of his research achievements.
