Visual communication model in cartography One of the uses for cartography is to visually communicate data. a map's primary function is to communicate information to the map reader, and that we as cartographers should try to develop design principles that will make this communication a more effective and efficient process. Maps can be described as vehicles for communication. models of how they cartographers thought this communication process functioned have been developed the common elements in the model include: o geographic reality o the cartographer's interpretation of that reality o the map itself and the map reader's interpretation of reality - The generalized cartographic communication model. Starts with the Real World, then becomes the Cartogrpher's Interpretation of the world, then the map, and then it becomes the map reader's interpretation of the world. - Most maps are used to visually communicate information, so the concept is not worth discarding.
