Description :One of the earliest thematic world maps published in the Netherlands from "Atlas der natuurkundige aardrijkskunde. . .". prepared by Nicolaas Wilhelmus Posthumus. Showing vulcanos.
The rise of science as geology, geography and statistics in the first half of the 19th century has the side effect the development of thematic cartography. [Robinson, 1982, Egmont and Ormeling, 2006].
The matic maps are meant not simply to show locations, but rather to show attributes or statistics about places, spatial patterns of those attributes, and relationships between places. For example, while a reference map might show the locations of cities, a thematic map might also represent the population of those cities.
In the Netherlands thematic cartography was introduced by N.W. Posthumus and J.Kuijper.

Interesting reading : Robinson, A.H., Early thematic mapping in the history of cartography. - Chicago, London, 1982.
