(from Greek chartis = map and graphein = write) is the study and practice
of making maps. Combining science, aesthetics, and technique, cartography
builds on the premise that reality can be modeled in ways that communicate
spatial information effectively." -
"A geographic information system (GIS), geographical information system,
or geospatial information system is a system designed to capture, store,
manipulate, analyze, manage and present all types of geographically
referenced data. In the simplest terms, GIS is the merging of cartography,
statistical analysis, and database technology. "
