"Cartography (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." -
