In its simplest terms, digital mapping involves the digitisation of either preexisting maps or the tracing and measuring of orthophotographic imagery. The
latter refer to the use of geometrically corrected aerial photography as the
basis for mapping, rather than using the traditional symbolic representations.
Dissemination of imagery through services such as Google Maps has encouraged everyday utilisation of such data. In either case, the result is a set of
spatio-temporally indexed digitaldata, which allows locations to be recorded
