[en] In 1983, personal computers emerge, and the few mapping softwares are reserved to "big" computers. The communication made ​​at AutoCarto Six sustains the hypothesis that micro-computing environment can support thematic mapping. The last decades have clearly confirmed this hypothesis. But first, it's more the portable and open software structure which proved its originality rather than the reliance on a particular hardware - now obsolete - and secondly, the role of thematic mapping today resorts to another kind of software - such as GIS - devoted to the processing of geographic information.
