By D.R. Fraser Taylor (Eds.)

For generations, the map has been critical to how societies functionality around the world. Cybercartography is a brand new paradigm for maps and mapping within the info period. outlined as "the association, presentation, research and verbal exchange of spatially referenced details on a wide selection of subject matters of curiosity to society," cybercartography is gifted in an interactive, dynamic, multisensory layout with using multimedia and multimodal interfaces. Cybercartography: thought and perform examines the foremost components of cybercartography and emphasizes the significance of interplay among thought and perform in constructing a paradigm which strikes past the concept that of Geographic info platforms and Geographical info technology. It argues for the centrality of the map as a part of an built-in details, communique, and analytical package.This quantity is end result of the a multidisciplinary staff attempt and has benefited from the enter of companions from executive, and different companies. The foreign group reviews on significant unique cybercartographic study and perform from various disciplinary views, together with the arts, social sciences together with human components psychology, cybernetics, English literature, cultural mediation, cartography, and geography. This new synthesis has intrinsic worth for industries, most people, and the relationships among mapping and the improvement of user-centered multimedia interfaces. * Discusses the centrality of the map and its significance within the info period * presents an interdisciplinary process with contributions from psychology, song, and language and literature * Describes qualitative and quantitative points of cybercartography and the significance of societal context within the interplay among thought and perform * includes an interactive CD-Rom containing colour photos, hyperlinks to web content, plus different vital info to seize the dynamic and interactive components of cybercartography
