ABSTRACT

Related to assuring the sustainability of our human society the technical field is playing an important role, beside the environmental and socio-economic field. Taking into account the technical field in connection with the social one, special attention has to be paid to the field of cartography. This is becoming more relevant than ever regarding assuring the sustainable development on a regional level because of the need of land property clarifications. A lot of progress has been made in the last years in the field of cartography, becoming more modern, because of applying and using new innovative ICT based techniques. In the last time the scientific level in cartography has been strongly developed, so that maps can be currently automatically derived from geo-data acquisition methods such as laser scanning, as well as remote sensing. Smart models of geo-data can be built, which are enabling in-depth analysis of structures and patterns. On the other side maps can be presented in a range of forms, from maps on mobile phones to augmented reality presentations that let viewers see real-world environments with amplified features using computer-generated sensory data. Sustainable cartography is using an interdisciplinary approach especially related to clarifying the causal relationship between population and their land property, materialized in land property maps. The proposed interdisciplinary paper will debate the role and challenges of cartography in getting sustainability and its possible contribution in this direction by delivering a kind of thematic map on the cartographic basis of regional sustainability.
