English abstract:
Much digital data generated today has a spatial component. Depicting, analysing and communicating this spatial data has been a cartographic concern for decades. Many methods, tools and technologies have been developed in cartography to effectively communicate this data to humans to support orienting in the environment, understanding (complex) natural and social phenomena, as well as making social, political and economic decisions. In recent years, with the advent of the information age and the growing volume of this data, cartography
as a discipline has become even more important and has gained much interest from expert and novice map users. This has an impact on how maps are used, perceived and applied, thus the functions of maps are increasing.
