Models are tools of various disciplines. They are a prerequisite of communication
in and between the disciplines. A model is made up by purpose-oriented
classification and reduction of the original. Every modelling process is primarily a
generalization process. Since the 60s, cartographic model theory has developed
on the basis of information theory, communication theory and semiology.
Cartographic model theory has its roots in the fundamental human concept of
mapping, i.e. the ...

Cartographic modeling is an ordered set of map operations designed to simulate
some spatial decision-making (making decisions about geographic space)
process. The order or sequence of map operations (including creating,
combining, and analyzing) is often critical to the success of a cartographic model,
and the idea that the result will simulate a spatial decision process is at the heart
of a cartographic model. Each map operation follows a carefully thought-out path
to model ...

In the parlance of geographic information systems (GIS), "cartographic modeling"
refers to a particular way of representing geographical phenomena. The simplest
type of cartographic model is what amounts to a single-factor map: a bounded
plane area depicting a geographic region such that every location within that
area represents a corresponding location within the region and characterizes that
location in terms of a single attribute. More typically, a cartographic model will
include ...

These major groups were further subdivided into types of functions (Table 14-2).
The first two primary functions deal with maintaining the GIS data, and the fourth
pertains to producing output from the system. The real power of GIS lies in the
ability to integrate the analysis of spatial and attribute data. 14-17 Cartographic
Modeling The functions of a GIS can be brought together to perform "cartographic
modeling." Cartographic modeling is a term coined to describe the use of basic
GIS ...
