The latter requires not only more spatial detail and interpretation (NCGIA 1997) but also additional external (and often not visible) information. Remotely sensed satellite data, for example, has proven to be more suitable for land cover information, at least in the times when spatial resolution was limited to scales 1:50,000 to 1:100,000.
