Thematic mapping

Thematic mapping aims to identify spatial distribution patterns of specific attribute (thematic) features. A thematic map is defined as a map that is specifically designed to show a particular theme. A cartographer can utilize the points, lines and polygons for map features. In map compilation, symbolization (graphic variables) is used to represent features on the earth surface. The legend explains the meaning of all the symbols on a map hence making it easy to interpret and analysis a map.
