Topographic maps show both physical and artificial entities of the surface of the Earth which represent distinct features forming the building blocks in map composition. Their portrayal on the map is subject to constraints dependent on the method of data collection, the map scale, the data processing procedures and the requirements of map users. In addition to constraints, geospatial data contain uncertainties and errors that are either inherent in the data or a result of the map composition process. The type and significance of these errors determine the quality of maps. This paper elaborates on the development of an integrated environment for monitoring and documenting quality in the map composition process. In this environment, quality plays a vital role in all phases of map production whereby it is continuously assessed and documented. The methodology described involves the design and implementation of a “quality model” based on international Standards. An integrated software application for the utilization of cadastral information to produce and update topographic maps at a scale of 1:25,000 was also developed. The aim is to implement the proposed methodology in a real production environment and to use it as a proof of concept. View Full-Text
