ABSTRACT

Although numerous thematic maps are generated using GIS software, it is not apparent that these thematic maps properly provide the exact information which can be induced in the maps. This paper aims to show the guide line of legends of thematic maps for providing exact information. According to the thematic map types, some problems of thematic maps generation using ArcGIS are examined. The significant things which map maker should know are understandings of data and suitability of generated maps. In formal aspects, thematic maps generated using GIS software need editing procedures for the completeness of the thematic maps.
