This article explores and explains the differences of emphasis in the past, evaluates current developments and speculates upon future uses of automated procedures in map collections. The emphasis is upon the automated retrieval and description of mapping, and upon technical, organisational, economic and political explanations for automation. The intention is to provide an overview and guide for the general reader to the concepts and literature of a specialist field.
