Cartography suffers in distributed web service environments and the poor presentation of data creates a negative perception of the data quality, spatial data infrastructures and web standards. The current domain of web based map driven display often ignores the fundamental concepts of basic cartography. The developers of the web based map tools are often programmers with little cartographic experience, training or guidance.
Over the next decade, the way we live, work and use energy, transportation and other city resources and services will change significantly thanks to a range of innovative ‘Smart City’ solutions. A Smart City integrates physical, digital and human systems to deliver a sustainable, prosperous and inclusive future for its citizens. Many of these innovative solutions will be based on sophisticated information and communication technologies.
