The Internet and Multimedia Cartography

  • Michael P. Peterson

Summary and suggestions

Cartography has always been subject to changes in technology. The particular change in the way maps are delivered to map user that began about a decade ago can be seen as a revolution. We are still adjusting to this rapid change. The research that is summarized here reflects this adaptation to a new medium. Clearly, there is much research yet to accomplish before the use of the Internet can be mastered by cartographers.

The Maps and the Internet commission of ICA has taken a leading role in spurring discussion and research about this new medium. Additional international efforts need to be focused on encouraging individual map suppliers and government agencies to take a greater role in improving the creation and use of maps through the Internet.
