ABSTRACT

The map reading process is not a customary work. We pass through some steps while
we get the necessary information from the map: Introduction to external components of
the map; Sign vehicle recognition; Perception of the sign meaning; Superinterpretation.
These four processes are discussed in the paper. It is shown their meaning for the
swiftness and correctness of sign perceptions, cartographic signs construction; and
creating of map legend.

Keywords: map semiotics, sign construction, sign perception.
