عنوان مقاله [English]
Geographic information system (GIS) is a phrase for expressing a deep, broad concept. Basically, geographic information system is a computer technology including hardware and software which has emerged in recent decades with the aim of reception, organization, analysis and finally design and production of various models (such as maps of underground resources) and which is currently evolving toward completion. The determining factor which distinguishes this technology from other systems of information storage and recovery is its attitude toward geographic places. This quality has helped GIS as a new technology to turn into a dynamic industry in analysis of quantitative and qualitative data and design of various types of geographic images.
In this paper, it is tried to briefly consider space imaging using GIS and to introduce the principles of geographic image design.
