The cartographic community realizes that the problems presented by the need to understand complex data can't be solved with maps alone, although they are convinced of their visual strength in complex circumstances. The community, and especially the commission on visualization and virtual environments of the International Cartographic Association, has taken a different approach to mapping. In practice, we should view geovisualization activities in the context of the geoprofessional's working approach. Geodata and software from all types of sources are now linked in geodata infrastructures established on local, national, and international levels. Users solve their problems with services and data available via the infrastructure and no longer need to have all data and software locally available. We should keep reaching to other technology-oriented disciplines, but we need to strive to make geovisualization knowledge common in application fields
