Advances in cartography
Published on behalf of the International Cartographic Association by Elsevier Applied Science, 1991 - Science - 251 pages
This volume provides an overview of existing and future research in cartography and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Although the focus is clearly on cartographic issues, those are often related to GIS issues also, such as the storage, management and analysis of spatial data or the role of institutions in promoting or defeating new technological practices. It summarizes the joint effort of a group of international experts dealing with issues regarding the design, management, exploitation, representation and communication of spatial information. Each chapter provides a practitioner's summary which states the achievements to this date, and a projective summary which gives an outline of research in the field of cartography and GIS required in the future. There are eleven chapters, covering three main areas: 1. Design and development of geographic information, 2. Exploitation including management and standards, and 3. Applications including navigation, representation and communication. The book should be of interest to anyone involved in the production or usage of spatial information and may help to identify research priorities in Research and Development organizations relating to cartography and GIS.
