Geography--Computer programs; Cartography


The use of computers in geography has contributed greatly to the improvement of mapping, has offered solutions to cartographic problems, and has introduced new approaches and potentialities to geographic spatial analysis: Three-dimensional maps, especially since automatically produced, provide a great potential for mapping statistical and topographic surfaces, for building solid models, dynamic mapping and simulation. The use of the isodensitracer technique suggests solutions to many traditional cartographic problems and eliminates many errors inherent to the common manual procedure of isoline mapping.
