  • In this section, we will lay down a framework for establishing a geospatial data foundation for a project. This will also introduce some basic concepts that we will be returning to later. Key concepts World of observation.The term world of observation refers to the selected phenomena that are of relevance to the project and other […]

  • Is a map the right media?

    The mapmaker’s first decision. Today the mapmaker is seldom a 100 % cartographer, but often a journalist, an urban planner, soil scientist or something else with some knowledge of mapmaking. This change is primarily the result of the development of mapmaking technology, where producing a good map has become much easier and more accessible for […]

  • If you are new to geospatial data, I recommend reading the article “The fundamentals of GeoSpatial data” which explains the basics of vector and raster data. If you are looking for an article about how to find GeoSpatial data read the article “Accessing and Managing Geospatial data“ Ways to Access data When you have found […]

  • Map and data Portals

    Data and Map portals are a rather heterogeneous group. Some are what is generally known as metadata servers that collect and organise all links to data within a country or region. While it at first glance might seem strange to cover data and maps under a common heading. The reason for this is that it […]

  • This is really a rather complex issue and is described in several sub articles This article need rewrite to insure that it also covers aspects such as world of discourse and ontology When discussing how geospatial information is represented as geospatial data it is common to distinguish between two aspects of geospatial data namely attribute […]

  • The Philosophy of Perception underlying most geospatial data collection is the idea that the way we gather and interpret data is inherently influenced by our perceptual experiences and biases. It suggests that the methods used for collecting geospatial data, such as remote sensing or field observations, are not neutral and objective, but rather are shaped […]
