Any interesting map theory books?

I'm looking for suggested book(s) for backgrounding myself in map theory. Think somewhere between a history of maps and a technical textbook. I've been looking at maps for 30+ years as a non-geographer, and will be taking some GIS and mapping courses this autumn. So, plenty of text-and-classroom exposure there. What kind of semi-technical background reading would be useful over the summer?

Help me find good interactive maps

What interactive maps have you seen that do a particularly good job illustrating an issue? I'm thinking about trying to put one together to illustrate a project I've been working on, which is loosely about policy changes, and I can't believe no one's done this before. This, from Newsweek, kinda gets it ... but I'm looking for other ideas.

This iPod thing ought to be a useful navigation tool.

Is there a good way to carry around maps on an iPod Touch for offline viewing, without jailbreaking the thing? Taking screenshots from Google and transferring them to the iPod is inelegant and unsatisfactory, but I can't find anything in the iTunes store that looks like it will do this. Does anybody know of either an app that I've overlooked or an acceptable hack?

I have a GIS question.

Basically, I want to build mapping system, similar to google maps, using something like Map server & open layers. Take in my own image, such as a building map, define roads or “hallways”, and import points via a XML or RSS feed. I want an interface that I can take the xml feed and run it under the map in a box, displaying it under the map, allowing users to click on the event, and being able to see where they need to go, and using a current fixed position, being able to see how to get there.
