عنوان مقاله [English]
The Cartographic Information System (GIS) produces a map, and the output can be graphic, printed or maps on the computer screen. Maps are generally different in appearance and dimensions. It is sometimes difficult to say that a product or output is an image or a map on a computer screen, which has a different name from paper maps. In the history of automatic cartography, the term "temporary map" and "permanent map" have been used. According to Riffe, a temporary map is the one that appears on the screen, or maps on the screen that have a conventional application. Temporary maps can be referred to as “intelligent maps”, which, in the strict sense of the word, are actually not available today. Riffe defines the term “non-map” in this way; data is obtained from sensors that are used in navigation and traffic control. He states that future maps are all temporary maps and non-maps. Morrison uses the title "Temporal Map" as a synonym for maps on the computer screen, and then uses the title "Printed Map" in contrast with it. The term “instant map” has also been used for the computer screen map.
