For Passini (1994, p.26): The reading process nothing more is of what the understanding of the cartographic language, decoding significant through the legend, using significant through the legend, using the calculations for the reversion of the scale, arriving measured ace real of the projected space and to obtain the information of the represented space, visualizing it. The cartography becomes, therefore, an important tool in the construction of knowledge in the space representation. To work it parallel disciplines geography and to others you discipline, must be made of systematic form. To read more click here: Dropbox. Not to present the cartography as if was a simple illustrative method, therefore, it is of what this and does not have also to be understood as important method of construction of the knowledge and knowing them geographic. According to national curricular parameters of geography (1999), the learning by means of different forms of representation and cartographic scales will have to be contemplated, at this moment, where if it initiates the pupil in the geographic studies, as well as to teach to separately carry through analytical studies of phenomena by means of the thematic maps, such as: climate, vegetation, population, ground, cultivos and agriculturists, etc. By in such a way, the alfabetizao and use of the cartography already are foreseen in the pertaining to school resume, as in the curricular parameters, that serve of base for the formularization of the contents. In the first ones contacts with the cartography, the activity most common applied by the professors is the painting of maps. Practical of the illustration and the painting of maps it is the times used by the geography professors, but, for what if it observes is not one very efficient technique of cartographic education. One in the easy ways most pleasant and to initiate the process of cartographic alfabetizao in the pupils is the use of mockups. The use of the mockup allows the operation to make its projection on the paper and to argue this operation of the cartographic point of view what it involves to represent in two dimensions the three-dimensional space, to represent all the area under one alone point of view and to keep to the proportionality elements among others represented.
