Cartography, Geographic Information, and Public Policy.
Monmonier, Mark S.
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v6 n2 p99-107 1982

This automation will force cartographers to concentrate upon the institutional aspects of information management. Implications for geographic education are discussed. (AM)
