Abstract / Description of output

The need for a significant improvement in the quality of cartographic output from geographic information systems has been identified elsewhere. It has been argued that encoding of cartographic knowledge into a cartographic expert system would be the most efficient means of achieving this goal. The cartographic design process can be broken down into a number of distinct tasks: preliminary inquiries, generalisation, symbol assignment, symbol placement and evaluation. -from AuthorsKingston Poly, Penhryn Rd, Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey KT1 2EE, UK.
