“Creating Visually Impressive GIS Mapping”
For any map or spatial analysis to be successful, the data must communicate to the user. Many times the time and expense of a detailed analysis is lost in the presentation. Map design and cartography is not "taking a picture." It involves structured processing, generalization, symbolization, and assembly. For any map to be effective, the data and graphic characteristics must be carefully chosen and integrated together. Map design involves intuition, rational choice, compromises, and like may fields, traditions and conventions.
The good cartographer is both a scientist and an artist. They must have a thorough knowledge of their subject and model, the Earth. They must have the ability to generalize intelligently and to make the correct selection of the features to show. These are represented by means of lines or colors; and the effective use of lines and colors requires more than knowledge of the subject — it requires artistic judgement. Erwin Josephus Raisz (1893-1968)
