ABSTRACT

A map symbolization specification stands for the rule and guidelines regarding the selection, definition, and representation of spatial features. As time goes, the map symbolization specification tends not to be able to reflect the actual properties of a rapidly changing modern society. As the national territories and the utility of the national maps are becoming more significant, the map symbolization specifications should be thoroughly and comprehensively improved as well. In this regard, we attempt to examine the existing map symbolization specifications and analyze the map specifications or mapping standards of advanced countries. By doing this, we suggest an improvement plan on the basis of the cartographic principles. Moreover, we provide the efficient maintenance and development plans from the short and long term perspectives. The results from this paper would be expected not only to provide more advanced map specifications and but also to enhance the aspect of user demand and reconsider the whole process and outcomes from national mapping. Also, our research would be expected to give a practical value to national mapping agency and related policy makers.
