The paper generalizes results of research into the field of diverse spatial data integration and the modern technological approaches to making cartographic products.
The 3-D computer simulation terrain model has become in the broad sense a part of the Earth sciences research and is used everywhere in such applied fields as ecology, land cadastre, navigation, in the development of large town-planning designs. In addition, three-dimensional cartographic visualization is more often applied to exploratory projects, making it possible through numerical methods to comprehensively examine a situation related to a particular object or phenomenon. Integration of spatial data, based on the up-to-date development level of computer engineering and software is to an increasing extent being introduced into technological processes of map production. There are considered scientific and methodological approaches to and peculiarities of the relief models use with different resolutions, from remote sensing data (Landsat, Spot, MODIS), artificial natural textures, as well as multilingual place-names databases in doing cartographical products. The potential of spatial information synthesis is illustrated with realized cartographic projects.
The given direction of work is of great practical value and in complete conformity with the purpose of the International program Electronic Earth.
