This modular collection of readings, videos, tutorials, and other resources about cartography was created under a Round 14 ALG Textbook Transformation Grant uses ArcGIS StoryMaps to create an open web-based interactive experience. Topics covered include an overview of cartography, map design, map types, map data, color and visual variables, geodesy and coordinate systems, typography, and ethics. Exams and a poster assignment are also available for download.

This partner text with the University of North Georgia Press was created under a Round Eleven Mini-Grant for Ancillary Materials Creation and Revision. New supporting materials for the book were created under a Round Fifteen Mini-Grant and include exercises, lecture slides, and sample questions.
The UNG Press also hosts a version of the text on their site:
"Geography is a diverse discipline that has some sort of connection to most every other academic discipline. This connection is the spatial perspective, which essentially means if a phenomenon can be mapped, it has some kind of relationship to geography.
Studying the entire world is a fascinating subject, and geographical knowledge is fundamental to a competent understanding of our world. In this chapter, you will learn what geography is as well as some of the fundamental concepts that underpin the discipline. These fundamental terms and concepts will be interwoven throughout the text, so a sound understanding of these topics is critical as you delve deeper into the chapters that follow."
