Summary

An analysis of the content and methods of college courses in map use yields a three-section result. The first is a rather traditional overview of the general uniformity in content (scale, coordinates, symbols, relief, and directions) but some diversity in methods. The focus is usually on map use skills. The second part classifies and analyzes the methodological diversity. A challenge to map use educators about the nature and future of map use courses is posed in the third section. Major emphasis on map appreciation and map relevance could greatly increase the appeal of such courses to general students and adult learners. The comments are directed only to complete courses, not situations where map use skills are part of another course such as physical geography. (Author)
