This project carries out a study need for the design and
implementation of a computer based cartographic system using National
population commission as case study.
The researcher attempt to find out an improved method of
cartographic drawing and how to automate the process (computerization).
Hindrances encountered in the mammal process that is, old approach
of using and papers in drawing maps which could lead to poor representation of
graphs, maps, hence the need for a well design and implemented computer based
cartographic system arises.
This project computer based cartographic system will also help to
keep record of many areas and maps of this country.

CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION
BACKGROUND OF THY STUDY
Cartography is study and paractice of making maps or globes. Maps have
traditionally been made using pen and paper, but the advent and spread of
computers has revolutionized cartography.
Most commercial qualities maps are now made with map making software that falls
into one of the three main types, CAD, GIS AND specialized map illustration
Maps functions as visualization tolls for spatial data. Spatial data is
acquired from measurement and can be stored in a database from which it can be
extracted from a variety of purposes. Current trends in this field are
moving away from analog methods of map making and towards the creation of
increasingly dynamic, interactive maps that can be manipulated digitally.
The cartographic process rest on the premise that the world is measurable and
that we can make reliable representations or models of that reality. Map
making involve advanced skills and attitudes, particularly the use of symbols
to represent certain geographic phenomens, as well as the ability to visualize
the world. In an abstract and scaled down form.
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
The present system of cartographic system of Nigerian population commission has
a lot of problems, which are mentioned below.
In term of accuracy, the system is relatively slow and since it is dependent to
human effort, so inevitable, it is also prone to human errors and omission.
Going by the present system of operaion, time is consumed in the handling of
operation; since most cartographic drawings are manilly operated with pen and
papers. It takes time to execute a particular work.
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The objectives of the study is designed to help the Nigeria population
commission in their cartographic and maps designing and rpresentation.
OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
The objectives of the study are as follows
1. To provide better efficient job presentation for
various designing in the commission.
2. To produce a system where information and output
report will be produced much faster, more accurately and more detailed to the
3. To keep records that are compact, integrated and
SCOPE OF THE STUDY.
This study is strinced at finding out how effectively the computerization of
the commission cartographic system will improve the operation of the
commission. However, the project is narrowed to planning department that
is responsible for map presentation and enumeration demarcation.
Due to insufficient information, I assumed the following;
(a) The staff of the particular department should be
(b) There should be enough tools and equipment for
DEFINITION OF TERMS
Computer:- A computer system is an electronic
device with certain physical and logical attributes which enables it to accept
input, process input and brings out output.
PROGRAMMING: Programming is a term used to refer
to the act of formulating algorithms and data structure which can be executed
by some computers, to perhaps yield the required solution to a given problem.
FLOW CHART: A flow
chart represents a systematic way of carrying out a process and is of use when
writing a computer program.
