The art or business of forming charts or maps.
1. The art of making maps. 2. The lines, points, and polygons that represent components of a map such as state boundaries, interstate highways, and cities. For example, Census Tract cartography consists of polygons that represent Census Tract boundaries.
The science of producing maps. The special problems of cartography include the correct determination of ground elevations (topography) and the most realistic possible rendering of the curved surface of the earth on plane map material.
The process by which maps and some charts are made.Cartography includes artistic skill as well as science and mathematics.
The art or work of making maps.
The production and science of accurately scaled maps.
The art of making maps and charts
The making of maps or charts.
the making of maps and charts
The art of drawing maps or charts
The science or act of making maps.
Art and science of the organization and communication of geographically related information such as a yield image into maps or charts.
The science and practice of representing the features of the Earth's surface graphically (in map form).
Cartography is the study and the construction of maps.
Science and art of making maps and charts. The term may be taken broadly as comprising all the steps needed to produce a map: planning, aerial photography, field surveys, photogrammetry, editing, color separation, and multicolor printing. Mapmakers, however, tend to limit use of the term to the map-finishing operations, in which the master manuscript is edited and color separation plates are prepared for lithographic printing.
The art and science of creating maps.
The science or art of making maps. A 'cartographer' is some one who makes maps.
The art or technique of making maps or charts. Many GPS receivers have detailed mapping—or cartography— capabilities.
The art, science and technology of making maps. Accurate measurements, classification and much more are used to make visual models of our world. It used to be done manually but with today's technology, it's done on computers.
The art and science of expressing graphically, usually through maps, the natural and social features of the earth. Used for: Custom Mapping
the science and art of making maps, including construction of projections, design, compilation, drafting and reproduction.
The art or science of making maps.
The drawing (creation) of maps.
The art and science of making maps.
Science of map and chart construction.
the science and art of making maps. Modern cavers survey caves as they explore them and later draft maps from these surveys.
The art or science of map or chart making. Many GPS receivers have detailed cartography/mapping capabilities.
The science and art of constructing maps and charts.
The science of map making, including the art and technology of map making.
Field of knowledge that studies map construction. The act of creating a map.
The study and making of maps from spatial information.
Science and art of making maps and charts. More broadly, the term includes all the steps necessary to produce a map: planning, aerial photography, drafting, editing, color separation, and multicolored printing. With regard to computerized spatial databases, a cartospatial feature is a point, line, arc string, chain, polygon, symbol, text or other form of spatial entity. Functionality of cartographic information systems is limited to encoding, displaying and measuring cartospatial features.
The science that deals with the principles, construction, and use of maps.
Cartography or mapmaking (in Greek chartis = map and graphein = write) is the study and practice of making maps or globes. Maps have traditionally been made using pen and paper, but the advent and spread of computers have revolutionized cartography. Most commercial-quality maps are now made with map-making software that falls into one of three main types; CAD, GIS, and specialized map illustration software.
