Dr. Nagi Zomrawi Mohammed | Dr. Eiman Eisa Ahmed Elhaj "Evaluation Study of Common Map Users Requirements" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-2 | Issue-4, June 2018, pp.284-288, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd12887.pdf

Map producer always try to produce maps that satisfy user needs and requirements. These needs varies from one user to another according to the field of application. Some users concentrate on cartographic requirement while others on geometric one. On the other hand, non-specialist users may not know specific requirement for their application. Knowledge of common users map quality requirements may help map producer to produce maps with general requirement thus, serves large sector of map users community and reduces cost. Moreover, it may reflect the type of map uses in a particular society. This research work aimed to study the common map quality required by different users in Khartoum. A questionnaire containing different items of map requirements was distributed to a wide spectrum of map users. Results reflects that all users concentrates on only few parameters. They all agreed on map orientation, scalling and only planmetric measurement. While, some parameters such as magnetic declination, overlapping and using standard coulors are not of their interest. On the other hand, about 50% of map users don’t require vertical or topographic information in their field of applications.
