Cartography is a science that deals with the study of the methodology of modeling the transposition of spatial-temporal content from spherical positions to space-nomogramic scale model - on a spherical surface (glob) and on the mathematical level (plan, map) in order to explore and understand  space and its state and changes: objects, phenomena and processes.

Application of the knowledge acquired about Cartography in geography classes.
