    schema:description "The International Cartographic Association Series reflects the state of professional cartography from an international perspective, and provides information on the application of new and developing technologies. Definitive volumes relate to different types of published mapping at a variety of scales and intended for diverse uses. Relevant applications of remotely sensed imagery and information technology during map generation are discussed, as are the international needs for the implementation of spatial database transfer standards, together with clearly set-out and potentially applicable policies for the future. Generalisation of Geographic Information presents the theoretical advancments in the field, to show how developments have advanced solutions to the point that they are being incorporated into existing commercal solutions. It also provides an over view of future research challenges. The reader will gain a clear picture of the breadth of cognate disciplines contributing to this field, as well as a thorough understanding of how these various methodologies are being applied to the real world. * Emphasizes both theoretical and practical advancements and attempts to demonstrate the critical role of the practical in order to achieve the practical * Focuses on vector based models due to their dominance in the field of automated mapping * Provides an strong footing for those contemplating research in automated mapping for the first time."@en ;
