Resource CDThis CD includes a wide variety of maps.  Some, such as the files in the GIS Maps folder, contain subnational boundaries by country and are suitable for use as base maps.  Others are simply images that may be useful as a base for a clickable map or for insertion into a Word document.  Yet others are files that can be loaded into ArcView.  This CD is distributed by the author free of charge and neither it, nor any of its files, are to be sold.

A few hard copy references are listed below, arranged in chronological order.   Some are classical, some are contemporary.  Most authors have written a number of books on cartography.  These few are offered as entry points to the literature at various time periods.
