Aim of course

The course explains how to understand and use the maps to obtain information about a wide variety of geoobjects in consideration of data analysis, scale dependence and perceptive parameters. Through short topographic and thematic problems you obtain the procurement of selected cartography-content and you get an insight into general principles of cartographic methodology

Subject of course

1) Topographic cartography - Official cartography of Austria (analogue and digital map-works) - Cartographic projections - Map utilization (map reading, map cartometry) - Cartographic modelling (generalisation, visualisation) 2) Thematic cartography - Map design: signature, diagram, - Data-level (nominal, ordinal, metric) - Characteristics of geo-objects (quality, quantity) - Data analysis, data distribution - Cartographic modelling (generalisation, visualisation) - Map form (analytical, complex-analytical, synthetical) 3. Map editing
