Task 
Read the core material for this section. Your tasks are to explain
the relationship between cartographical modelling and map algebra,
identify the use of "natural language" in processing spatial
data, identify the four steps required to implement a cartographic
model in a GIS software application, and identify three benefits of
using cartographical modelling in GIS. The material contains several
etutorials that you should complete to demonstrate your understanding.

Task 
Your task
is to document the procedure for implementing a cartographical model.
You should attend the lecture on GIS modelling and read the chapter
by DeMers (2004) that describes the overall procedure, and Tomlin
(1990), who first introduced map algebra in his Map Analysis Package,
presents the syntax.
