Summary of the subject: Essence, subject and object of cartographic modeling. Mapping methods on objects, phenomena and processes of abstraction, classification, simplification, symbolization and induction systems to create maps as models of reality. The theoretical, experimental, mathematical and other cartographic modeling. Quantitative and qualitative characteristics of processes and phenomena depicted on maps represent them in space-time environment. Determining a map structure, relationships and dynamics of different objects and phenomena.
Assessment methods and criteria: - reports on laboratory work, oral examination, reference work (30%); - final control (60% credit): written, oral form (70%).
