Abstract:A research agenda is presented which addresses the current role and potential of map displays. By considering the geospatial data used in visualization, the form and design of maps, the purposes for which map displays are created, the nature of the map user community, and the technology employed to visualize geospatial data, a thorough overview of the nature of cartographic visualization is given. Under the same themes, and sourced in cartographic tradition, cartographic practice and technological opportunities, a series of possible research avenues are highlighted. The important links between representation and the user interface, map user cognition and the geospatial database are stressed.

- Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS) is the official publication of the Cartography and Geographic Information Society. CaGIS supports research, education, and practices that improve the understanding, creation, analysis, and use of maps and geographic information. The society serves as a forum for the exchange of original concepts, techniques, approaches, and experiences by those who design, implement, and use geospatial technologies through the publication of authoritative articles and international papers. The role of the CaGIS journal is to facilitate these objectives by disseminating results and reports in these areas of interest.
Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS) is now being published by Taylor & Francis as of 2013. Please visit the Journal's website at www.tandfonline.com/tcag or contact email@example.com to subscribe and obtain online access.
