In the 1970s, was the rage (mapping focus). In the 1980s, Spatial Database Management and geo-query took center stage (data/structure focus). In the 1990s, GIS Modeling was at the forefront (analysis focus).

The process of making maps with GIS is much more flexible than traditional manual or automated cartography approaches. It begins with database creation.
