Cartography 1 (NOG11O2)

  • Level of study undergraduate studies
  • Teacher: Ph.D. Dragica Živković
  • Subject status: obligatory
  • ECTS: 5
  • Semester: I
  • Number of classes: 2+2

The object of studies is methodology of modeling transpositions of spatial-temporal contents from spherical into spatio-nomographic proportional model-on spherical surface (globe) and on mathematical plane (plan, maps) through mathematical-cartographic methods, geographic map elements, digital visualization.

Based on mathematical, cartographic and geographic elements, students will read the exposed map content. Further, on that basis, they will read out eductive and productive map content that enables insight in causal and consequential geo-spatial connections. Digital cartography will enable geo-visualization.
