Cartographics Designing the Modern Map is a collection of maps that tread off the beaten path of mapmaking and redefineexactly what a map can do. Two sections, Mapping the Physical Environment and Mapping Human Activity, feature maps that depict a wide variety of themes; some incorporate strategies from infographics, such as one that uses abstract depictions of public transportation lines, while others use traditional strategies to explore contemporary subjects such as geopolitical maps of fictional countries in video games and others.
Offering an up-to-date account of systems theories and its applications, this book provides a different way of resolving problems and addressing challenges in a swift and practical way, without losing overview and grip on the details. From this perspective, it offers a different way of thinking in order to incorporate different perspectives and to consider multiple aspects of any given problem. Drawing examples from a wide range of disciplines, it also presents worked cases to illustrate the principles. The multidisciplinary perspective and the formal approach to modelling of systems and processes of ´Applied Systems Theory´ makes it suitable for managers, engineers, students, researchers, academics and professionals from a wide range of disciplines; they can use this ´toolbox´ for describing, analysing and designing biological, engineering and organisational systems as well as getting a better understanding of societal problems. This revised, updated and expanded second edition includes coverage of abductive reasoning, the relevance of systems theories for research methods and a new chapter about problem analysis and solving based on systems theories.
This edition combines the text of the ninth edition of Liddell and Scott´s Greek-English Lexicon with an extensively revised and expanded Supplement.
