Does Digital Cartography Have More Value Than Non-digital Mapping?

A lot has been written about digital cartography over the years. Most of it relates to the advantages that digital cartography provides as compared to non-digital mapping including improved  collaboration, less redundancy, greater efficiency in production etc. As mobility technologies develop, the need for ‘going digital’ increases. This is becoming the case as we begin

What Is Spatial Quality and Why Is It Important To The Design Process?

Spatial quality is about strategies, policies, design and effective creation and use of spaces. It applies to buildings, landscapes and infrastructure. While spatial data quality is also important, it is not spatial quality, but can be considered an important aspect of good spatial quality. Effective design will have higher spatial quality as functioning increases, use
