With big geospatial data emerging, cartographers and geographic information scientists have to find new ways of dealing with the volume, variety, velocity, and veracity (4Vs) of the data. This requires the development of tools that allow processing, filtering, analysing, and visualising of big data through multidisciplinary collaboration. In this paper, we present the MapFactory design pattern that will be used for the creation of different maps according to the (input) design specification for big geospatial data. The design specification is based on elements from ISO19115-1:2014 Geographic information -- Metadata -- Part 1: Fundamentals that would guide the design and development of the map or set of maps to be produced. The results of the exploratory research suggest that the MapFactory design pattern will help with reuse and communication. The MapFactory design pattern will aid software developers to build the tools that are required to automate map making with big geospatial data. The resulting maps would assist cartographers and others to make sense of big geospatial data.

Director
Centre for Geoinformation Science, Department of Geography, Geoinformatics and Meteorology, University of Pretoria, South Africa

Serena Coetzee is associate professor in the Department of Geography, Geoinformatics and Meteorology and Director of the Centre for Geoinformation Science (CGIS) at the University of Pretoria in South Africa. Her research focuses on the management and maintenance of the ever-increasing volumes of geographic information and the challenges of making the information available and usable. Her research aims to contribute to understanding and improving spatial data infrastructure (SDI) practice and theory. Specific research foci are address data, standards, open principles, geoinformatics education and geovisualization. Serena chairs the Commission on SDI & Standards of the International Cartographic Association (ICA) and actively participates in geographic information standardization at ISO/TC 211, Geographic Information/Geomatics, amongst others, in the suite of ISO standards on addressing (ISO 19160) and as chair of the Programme Maintenance Group.

Chief, Mapping and Boundary Branch
Bureau of Ocean Energy Management

Douglas Vandegraft is the Chief of the Mapping and Boundary Branch for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM ). Doug began his career as a Cartographer for the Federal Government in Alaska. In 2000 he became the Chief Cartographer for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Under his leadership, the FWS constructed a cadastral geodatabase containing all boundaries and parcels within the National Wildlife Refuge System. Doug transferred to BOEM in 2010 with the specific goal of modernizing the mapping program. In 2006 he served as President of CaGIS, and is currently on the ICA U.S. National Committee.
