Abstract

This report is the tenth quadrennial account of UK cartography to be submitted to the International Cartographic Association (ICA). The aim of this report is to present a broad overview of the scope of cartography in the UK. As is seen cartography is currently a very rapidly developing and dynamic area. To a large extent many of the changes are a direct result of the rapid advances in Information Technology that have come about in this relatively short period of time. Lower costs of computer software and hardware, desktop scanning technology, communications and network technology (including the information superhighway), user-interfaces, and field data collection are but a few of the areas which have experienced almost revolutionary developments recently. In seeking information upon which to base this report it was therefore necessary to request information from both cartography and the related technologies such as remote sensing, geographical information systems (GIS), and global positioning systems (GPS). -from Author
