  Article:   SPAŢIAL DATA CAPTURE IN GIS ENVIRONMENT.

Authors:  A.M. IMBROANE.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  Traditionally geographical data is presented on maps using sym- bols, lines and colours. A map is an effective medium for presentation and a database for storing geographical data. But herein lies some limitations. The stored information is processed and presented in a particular way and for a particular purpose. A map provides a fixed, static picture of geography that is almost always a compromise between many different users. Compared to maps GIS (Geographical Information System) has the inherent advantage that data storage and data presentation are separate and may be presented and viewed in various ways. The core of GIS environment is the matching of spaţial data (digital maps) and attribute data (the meaningful of spaţial data) together. The attribute data are in fact tables associated with geo- graphical features stored in spaţial database. The main problem is capturing and storing spaţial data in digital form. In this paper we will approach just spaţial data capture in vector format and not the database organization.
