National Geographic Visual Atlas of the World
Taking the whole world as its theme, this atlas lives up to its title, and through a large series of well-compiled, beautifully designed thematic maps presents a dramatic picture of today’s world and the issues it faces. Many individual thematic maps are excellent in their presentation of often highly complex subjects. Although much of the material is not new, some of it is, and all is excellently produced. Many principles of thematic cartography are perfectly adhered to throughout the book.
Graham Gill presented the award to Rebecca Hill of The National Geographic Society.
The Dynamic World
Although fairly traditional in its design and approach, the map makes the theme clear and is imaginative in its presentation of different aspects of the subject with a good choice of content for explaining the theme of plate tectonics and the dynamic nature of the Earth.
Graham Gill presented the certificate to Mary Spence MBE of Global Mapping.
Natural Gas System of Europe
This is a very complex map, carrying an enormous amount of information but nevertheless is an excellent representation of the theme, using good design, colour choices and symbology.
Unfortunately no-one from Platts, USA, could attend the presentation and so Graham Gill presented the certificate to BCS Vice President Ciff Nicklin.
