Definition

The physical characteristics of a cartographic material other than a globe.
VIS 

Use for maps that are components of a kit.

MAP 

Use for all maps, including atlases. Do not use for map microforms. Use field 007 microforms for map microforms. Do not use for globes. Use field 007 globes for globes.

All formats 

007 is valid in all formats so you can code for the physical characteristics of the parts of an item such as accompanying material.

Subfields

 
‡a Category of material   A one-character alphabetic code that indicates the category of material to which the item belongs is map.
a Map. Item is a map, which is all cartographic material other than a globe. Use code a for single maps, map series, map serials, and atlases.
‡b Specific material designation   A one-character alphabetic code that describes the special class of material (usually the class of physical object) to which an item belongs (e.g., a diagram).
d Atlas. An atlas contains maps, related text, and other cartographic information.
g Diagram. A diagram is a graphic representation of numerical data or of the course or results of an action or process. Use also for a map characterized by much simplified, or schematic, representation.
j Map. A map is two-dimensional representation normally to scale and on a flat medium, of a selection of material or abstract features on, or in relation to, the surface of the earth or of another celestial body.
k Profile. A profile is a scale representation of the intersection of a vertical surface (which may or may not be a plane) with the surface of the ground, or of the intersection of such a vertical surface with that of a conceptual three-dimensional model representing phenomena having a continuous distribution (e.g., rainfall).
q Model. A model is a three-dimensional representation of a real item, either of the exact size of the original or to scale.
r Remote-sensing image. A remote-sensing image is produced by a recording device not in physical or intimate contact with the object under study.
s Section. A section is a scaled representation of a vertical surface (commonly a plane) displaying both the profile where it intersects the surface of the ground or some conceptual model and the underlying structures along the plane of intersection (e.g., geological section).
u Unspecified. The specific material designation is not specified.
y View. A view is a perspective representation of the landscape in which detail is shown as if projected onto an oblique plane.
z Other. None of the other codes is appropriate.
‡d Color   The color characteristics of the map.
a One color. The map is one color.
c Multicolor. The map is multicolored.
‡e Physical medium   The material out of which the cartographic item is made.
a Paper. The material is any kind of cellulose-based paper.
b Wood. The material is wood. Material which is based on wood particles or fibers may or may not be considered wood. Consider particle board to be wood. 
c Stone. The material is stone.
d Metal. The material is metal.
e Synthetic. Man-made substances other than textiles, plastic, and vinyl. Formerly, this code included plastic and vinyl in its definition.
f Skin. Excludes leather, parchment, and vellum. Synthetic materials that are made to resemble animal skin are coded as synthetic. Formerly, this code included parchment, leather, and vellum in its definition.
g Textile. The material is textile. Use for all fabrics whether made from natural or synthetic fibers.
i Plastic. The material is plastic.
j Glass. The material is glass.
l Vinyl. The material is vinyl.
n Vellum. Fine-grained unsplit lambskin, kidskin, or calfskin prepared especially for writing or drawing on.
p Plaster. The material is plaster. Use also for mixtures of ground solids and plaster.
q Flexible base photographic medium, positive. The material is a flexible base photographic medium designed to render a positive image.
r Flexible base photographic medium, negative. The material is a flexible base photographic medium designed to render a negative image.
s Non-flexible base photographic medium, positive. The material is a non-flexible base photographic medium designed to render a positive image.
t Non-flexible base photographic medium, negative. The material is a non-flexible base photographic medium designed to render a negative image.
u Unknown. The physical medium of the map is not known.
v Leather. Animal skin dressed for use.
w Parchment. Skin of a sheep or goat prepared for writing on.
y Other photographic material. The material is a photographic material other than those coded by one of the more specific codes q, r, s, and t.
z Other. None of the other codes is appropriate.
‡f Type of reproduction   Whether the cartographic item is a facsimile or other type of reproduction.
f Facsimile. A facsimile resembles the original in aspects possible, but is not the original.
n Not applicable. The item is not a reproduction.
u Unknown. The type of reproduction is not known.
z Other. None of the other codes is appropriate.
‡g Production/ reproduction details   The photographic technique used to produce the cartographic image.
a Photocopy, blueline print. The map is a photocopy, blue line print composed of blue lines on a white background. Bluelines are made from vellum, film positives, or any translucent or transparent original on which an image has been made and reproduced by the whiteprint process.
b Photocopy. The map is a photocopy of the original.
c Pre-production. The map is a pre-production (proof) copy intended for review.
d Film. The map is a film copy of the original.
u Unknown. The production/reproduction details are not known.
z Other. None of the other codes is appropriate.
‡h Positive/negative aspect   The positive/negative aspect of the photocopy or film of the cartographic item. This characteristic is also referred to as polarity.
a Positive. The polarity is positive (i.e., the images are dark on a light background).
b Negative. The polarity is negative (i.e., the images are light on a dark background).
m Mixed. The photocopy or film is a mixture of positive and negative images.
n Not applicable. The item is not a photocopy or film.
