Cybercartography•Cybercartography is a theoretical construct proposed by D.R.Fraser Taylor (1997, 2003, 2013). It is:“the organization, presentation, analysis and communication ofspatially referenced information on a wide variety of topics ofinterest and use to society in an interactive, dynamic, multimedia,multisensory and multidisciplinary format”.Cybercartography offers an opportunity for deeply rethinkinghow we design and produce, disseminate and use maps on theInternet.
