To a certain extent, this cartography widens human capacities to see, observe and understand localized phenomena and their spatial distributions [PET 95]. In concrete terms, the major challenge is for the intuitive queries issued by the user, which is not necessarily a specialist, to have associated with them effective visual cartographic responses, using a very wellstructured computer application and integrating all the rules of cartography [ASC 94]. 1. Characteristics of interactive cartography This cartography, according to H.

ALB 06]. 14 Thematic Cartography 3 However, for the purposes of this book, it is P. Burrough’s definition [BUR 86], which is relatively general, that will be retained: “A GIS is a powerful set of tools for collecting, storing, retrieving at will, transforming and displaying spatial data from the real world, for a particular set of purposes”. It is therefore an information system for which it possesses the qualities and properties, with one original feature that is fundamental: the information is linked to space.

4. 4. The Moland model: procedure (see color plate section) The MOLAND model aims to simulate different future scenarios for land use. 4). – The input data are made up, principally, of two maps: the land use map for the reference date (1990 in this example), and its equivalent for another date, as recent as possible. The land use categories are identified on the reference map; the surface areas occupied by each of these categories are calculated in the second map. – The calibration of the model is then performed using the surface areas covered by the different categories at the two dates.
