Abstract

There is an opinion that the ultimate goal of a geographical map is accurate reproduction of the World. This is true but it is not a whole truth. Really, one of the function of maps is information function. However, any language, including the language of maps, have a number of other non-informational functions. The set of methods for solving such problems in ordinary language is called «rhetoric». Accordingly, a set of similar methods and techniques in cartography we propose to call «georhetoric». The existence of rhetorical techniques in cartography is discussed, some of them are shown, the possible applications of georhetoric, especially in decision support systems, are discussed.

Keywords
