[graphics (map display)] The process of making maps using computer systems that carry out many of the tasks associated with map production.
Digital cartography and GIS both encode spatial relationships in structured formal representations. GIS is used in digital cartography modeling as a (semi)automated process of making maps, so called Automated Cartography.

In the 1970s, Automated Cartography was the rage (mapping focus). In the 1980s, Spatial Database Management and geo-query took center stage (data/structure focus). In the 1990s, GIS Modeling was at the forefront (analysis focus).
