About the Book

"Cartography and Geoinformatics" seeks to introduce the map science of Cartography and its modern supportive technologies collectively termed Geoinformatics in straightforward terms so that it is intelligible to the reader. It is thus supposed to serve as an accessible sourcebook for teachers and students on this complex subject. Covering several upend technologies--like Aerial and Satellite Remote Sensing, GIS, GPS, and the Internet--which are becoming all-pervasive in the modern globalized world, the book refrains from the Blackbox approach. It emphasizes explication of the knotty concepts and principles in simple terms practically without recourse to hardcore mathematics or science. The book presents fundamental concepts of Cartography, including some of its internal aspects as well as aerial and space Remote Sensing, GIS, and GPS. Finally, it takes a panoramic view of the whole field to deduce its current trends and conclusions.
