All this may in simple terms be accomplished via demonstrating new study achievements, sharing most sensible practices (e.g. within the health and wellbeing zone) and dealing in the direction of the broader recognition of geospatial know-how in society, with assistance from schooling and media.
This booklet will define learn frontiers and purposes of cartography and GI in EW and CM and rfile their roles and potentials in wider approaches occurring in information/knowledge-based societies.
