Abstract: Evaluation of present-day road books was conducted as a part of assessment of cartographic works. This assessment is conducted using aesthetic and user-friendliness criteria and is part of a larger project financed by the Grant Agency of the Charles University (GA UK no. 249/2006/B-GEO/PrF) called "Application of Aesthetics in Visualization Methods of Cartography". The road books were evaluated by a combined method of evaluation criteria and field research among users which took place in November 2007 at selected petrol stations in the Central Bohemian Region, Czech Republic. The users´ opinions and evaluations were collected via questionnaires and conducted interviews. The paper presents results of the field research and the evaluation of criteria. The evaluation was performed by a four-member team of geography and cartography students, with the help of methodological instructions of the author.
