Learning outcomes
Geographical Cartography provides the ability to automate map production and to integrate earth imagery with other data to solve geographic problems. Results can be displayed in a variety of ways including new maps, tables, charts, or all of these in combination. Geographical Cartography is becoming a widely available and affordable technology which can be used by nearly every corporation, governmental agency, or nonprofit organization.
