Cartography expert witnesses may be relevant for several types of cases, as cartography refers to the various techniques involved with mapmaking. Cartography expert consulting may provide valuable information for cases involving such issues as land development, land surveying, spatial information and digital modeling, geographic information systems (GIS), imaging, and other related areas, as each may be at the center of a cartography-related court case.
Cartography experts are often from a background of land surveying, which may involve such issues as boundary disputes, water rights, public works, and other areas pertaining to project management and land development. Cartography litigation may also concern flood drains, flood plains, and/or flood insurance, as mapping may be utilized as a means of avoiding floods and other environmental issues. Cartography is also used in the planning of hydrology and other disciplines pertaining to public works.
Cartography expert witnesses may also have experience with parks and recreation management, property management, real estate development, or other areas involving project management, since mapping the geography of an environment is very important for future land use, whether it is for coastal, urban, rural, or industrial development projects.
Other methods involved with cartography include aerial mapping, photogrammetry, aerial surveys, global positioning system surveying, route surveying, and other mapping procedures.
