While I agree with the Morris division of semiotics, I am deeply unsatisfied with the way this division is applied in most studies in theoretical cartography. This is why below I would like to propose a new approach to the definition of these three subfields of semiotics in the cartographic context. I am particularly interested in the role pragmatics, currently one of the most dynamically developing branches of linguistic theory and in the same time a relatively neglected aspect of cartographic… 

Cartographic Communication in the Perspective of the Linguistic Pragmatics

When writing about pragmatics, theoreticians of cartography usually refer to the classic "Foundations of the theory of signs" by Morris (1938). Let me remind that Morris has divided semiotics into

CONCEPTUAL MODELS FOR CARTOGRAPHIC REPRESENTATION

This paper is inspired by recent discussions of the possibility of a universal map language, a framework for cartographic visualization and a need for a theory of spatial information in general and proposes to concentrate on developing information models that can easily be tested for their efficiency in thematic cartography.

Towards The Theory Of Structures Of Maps In Their Deep/Concept Dimension

An attempt to develop a systematical comparison between the mental-dimension of maps and texts has been undertaken, on the basis of the van Dijk's (1980) theory of macrostructures.
