Paper Abstract

Cartography has long suffered from a series of inefficiencies in its design processes. These range from the semantics of its symbology through to the mechanical processes in the eventual drawing of the map. Previous attempts at improving these processes are briefly outlined, and Interactive Computer Graphics (ICG) is seen as playing an important new role in cartography. In the University environment it is unlikely that geographers and cartographers will have dedicated systems of their own. More likely the ICG system will be shared between a number of disciplines each having common graphics requirements. The implications of this on software development are discussed.
