Genre headings for cartographic material
The use of adjectival forms of map subdivisions (e.g. Maps, Topographic) has been discontinued. NLNZ will follow LC policy and bring out the form of map by the use of genre headings. These genre headings should be applied in addition to any subject headings that are necessary.
NLNZ will use authorised cartographic genre headings. The following is not a complete list of cartographic genre headings but a list of ones that are more likely to be used:
Digital maps (Used on both digitised and born digital maps)
Remote sensing maps
The genre/form term Maps should be applied to every map for which a more specific genre/form term is not available.
