(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. "
