Abstract
This paper analyzes the close connections between map, territory and landscape in order to create a theoretical framework for landscape studies. Thanks to various technical and conceptual advances, the ideas of map and cartography have been expanded and refined during the last decades. Although this development has been motivated by a wide array of professional disciplines, geography appears to be the one that has focused the most in theorizing about the concept and application of maps. As a result, recent notions have emerged from this discipline that allow us to construct a rich theoretical framework that provides a means to re-examine landscape practice, theory and research. The aim of this section is to analyze how the relationship between space and representation has changed over the course of the 20th century.
