Map: A big matter now a days

A map is a visual representation of an area – symbolic depiction highlighting relationships between elements of that space such as objects, regions, and themes. Many maps are static two-dimensional, geometrically accurate (or approximately accurate) representations of three-dimensional space, while others are dynamic or interactive, even three-dimensional. Although most commonly used to depict geography, maps […]

Maps to make sense of water pollution data

March 27, 2014 | Environmental Issues, General Science, GeoTechnology | by aHaSaN

An interactive public information map posted by Esri, a GIS software company, showed observed […]
