This booklet is constituted of a range of the simplest papers offered in the course of the twenty fifth overseas Cartography convention which was once held in Paris among third and eighth July 2011. The scope of the convention covers all fields of proper GIS and Mapping examine topics, reminiscent of geovisualization, semiotics, SDI, criteria, facts caliber, information integration, generalization, use and consumer concerns, spatio-temporal modelling and research, open resource applied sciences and internet providers, electronic illustration of historic maps, heritage of GIS and cartography in addition to cartography for faculty little ones and education.

The semicircles represent the mental image of the surrounding world of a hypothetical person in different stages of his/her life from very early childhood, through adultery to high ages. The size of the semicircles shows the amount of information acquired and stored. The different sectors show the composition of these information-masses regarding the three components, Classifying, Analysing and Experiencing Maps 47 visual-, abstracted- and imaginary elements. g. g. visual experiences through studying maps, atlases and other descriptions of the world.

1999, Ware 2004). These principles specify the missing components in connecting the diversified knowledge of the sonic environment. The display of sound in varying contexts would enable the visual utilization of acoustic information and provide a solid common level of communication. Based on extensive research of multidisciplinary perspectives on the sonic environment and their visual communication techniques, the visualization of sound has to meet the following challenges. 1 Envisioning Sound Envisioning sound involves the fundamental problem of designing visual presentations of information that has no clear relation or association to familiar physical geometries (Bugajska 2003).

E. e. e. understanding of the map´s contents and intellectual structures and their connections with the related fields of research. • The second main direction is analysing - people’s the experiencing of maps and – in relation/connection to this – - people’s experiencing the human environment (mental mapping). The specific relation between the three components is then the key element which connects all studies concerning one and the same group of maps. One crucial point that is necessary to emphasize from the beginning: A.
