摘要: 地图信息传递模型是从地图制图到用图过程的概括和简化。它是地图信息产生和应用的客观反映,其实践意义可概括为这几方面:用信息科学总结和研究地图制图的实践活动;在地图分析研究中的作用,对地图设计和编制的影响;丰富了地图学的理论研究。地图从制作到使用是一个复杂的系统,应用信息科学和系统分析的观点与方法,对其内部规律作深入地研究,找出提高地图信息传递效果的控制因素,促进地图科学的发展。

Abstract: The model of cartographic communication is a generalization and simplification of process from making to using map and also is objectively reflection of generation and application of cartographic information. It plays an important role in any activety in which the preparation and use of maps is a matter of basic interest. This includes summarizing and studying cartographic science, affecting the map design and compilation, applying several methods of map analysis and enriching content of research on theoretical cartography. The practical meaning of cartographic communication is presented in aspect of not only the cognition of cartography but also the research on complex system of making and using map. Information itself is of a communication character. If we only knew the cartographic information bearing the function of transmission, we would not pay attention to further studying the cartographic communication. From making to using map being a complex process its law must be analysed and studied furtherly with the method of information science, cybernetics and systemtical analysis. Then some control components may be found to raise transmiting efficiency. Only in this situation can we apply information theory and cybernetics to promote and bring about a great adance in cartography.
