LU Su-fen ;


Maps have traditionally been a tool of geography but since the end of the 19th century geographical studies and cartography have developed along divergent paths. Over-reliance of geographers on cartographers to produce maps results in their inability to compose maps and use that tool to express themselves. Cartographers, on the other hand, elaborate on map production techniques, including drawing, printing, design, and analysis, but their work is handicapped by insufficient knowledge of geography. Closer cooperation between the two is urged. (TNC).
