This paper argues that the technological 'development of cartography' is dominating the discipline. Interest in technology is resulting in neglect of other aspects of the discipline such as the application of cartography to the solution of human problems. Consideration of cartography as art has disappeared from cartographic journals. The over-emphasis on technological aspects of the discipline may be a cause of the neglect. The paper examines cartography as art in the Canadian context and looks at the cartography of development using China as an example.
