Digital Cartographical Data (DCD) The Hellenic Statistical Authority () in an effort to upgrade its products and services and modernize its function so as to provide reliable and timely information and at the same time in order to cope with the public's increasing needs, has developed the Geographical Information System (GIS) which comprises a digital database. A major change in cartography during the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries has been the use of geographic information system (GIS) software to produce, store, and use maps. GIS software can be used to create custom maps that cover an area or portray features of specific interest to a user. f) Digital cartographic system a) portable word processor The determining factors are size, weight and battery power. However, remember the purpose, this is a word processor not an address book or even data entry device. LCD screen —low power requirement Trackball or stylus for pointing Real keyboard – you can’t word process without a reasonable keyboard and stylus .
