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 ...

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 ...

McHarg's method of synthesizing multiple map layers into a single end map took
on new form with the advent of GIS. Fellow landscape architect C. Dana Tomlin
developed the concept and algorithms of “map algebra” with his 1983
dissertation and 1990 book, Geographic Information Systems and Cartographic
Modeling. The process of cartographic modeling uses a combination of simple
operations—local (on individual raster cells), focal (on individual cells and their
neighbors), ...
