Cartography
CARTOGRAPHY (from Greek χάρτης _khartēs_, "papyrus, sheet of paper, map"; and γράφειν _graphein_, "write") is the study and practice of making maps . Combining science , aesthetics , and technique, cartography builds on the premise that reality can be modeled in ways that communicate spatial information effectively. The fundamental problems of traditional cartography are to: * Set the map's agenda and select traits of the object to be mapped. This is the concern of map editing. Traits may be physical, such as roads or land masses, or may be abstract, such as toponyms or political boundaries. * Represent the terrain of the mapped object on flat media. This is the concern of map projections . * Eliminate characteristics of the mapped object that are not relevant to the map's purpose

Party Wall
A PARTY WALL (occasionally PARTI-WALL or PARTING WALL, also known as COMMON WALL) is a dividing partition between two adjoining buildings (or units) that is shared by the tenants of each residence or business. When built for this purpose, the builder will lay the wall along a property line dividing two terraced flats or row houses , so that one half of the wall's thickness lies on each property. This type of wall is usually structural. Party walls can also be formed by two abutting walls built at different times. The term can be also used to describe a division between separate units within a multi-unit apartment complex. Very often the wall in this case is non-structural but designed to meet established criteria for sound and/or fire protection between residential units. Party walls are typically made of non-combustible material. Where required by code, the party wall could be a firewall
