Bertin’s first book “Semiology of Graphics” was published in 1967 and the second book “Graphics and Graphic Information-processing” in 1977. We can find the word “processing” in the title of the second book. In those days, there was not yet a personal computer with the graphic processor and display system. Bertin’s methods is concerning making a thematic map. Thus, it demands some theory and techniques to represent information as well. If the representation is systematic there should be a sort of tool kits otherwise the representation demands much works and much attention for the drawing to follow the theory, and even more it would be unstable and illegible if the work is not perfect. In the Bertin’s laboratory, there were many kind of tool kits to develop thematic maps. In this paper we discuss on the difference between the automation and the processing; the full automation system and the processing assist system through the documents conserved at the National Archives in Paris.
