Title: Thematic mapping
Post by: PeterC on 2 February 2016, 06:42:14
According to Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thematic_map) a thematic map is a type of map especially designed to show a particular theme connected with a specific geographic area. These maps "can portray physical, social, political, cultural, economic, sociological, agricultural, or any other aspects of a city, state, region, nation, or continent".


One website dedicated to the possibilities and technology of thematic mapping is http://thematicmapping.org/ (http://thematicmapping.org/)
