"A thematic map is a type of map or chart especially designed to show a particular theme connected with a specific geographic area. ...
A thematic map is a map that focuses on a specific theme or subject area, whereas in a general map the variety of phenomena - geological, geographical, political - regularly appear together. ...
Thematic maps emphasize spatial variation of one or a small number of geographic distributions. These distributions may be physical phenomena such as climate or human characteristics such as population density and health issues. ...
Thematic map are sometimes referred to as graphic essays that portray spatial variations and interrelationships of geographical distributions. Location, of course, is important to provide a reference base of where selected phenomena are occurring. ...
Thematic maps serve three primary purposes.
First, they provide specific information about particular locations.
Second, they provide general information about spatial patterns.
Third, they can be used to compare patterns on two or more maps." [Thematic map. Wikipedia]

"A thematic map is a map that focuses on a specific theme or subject area. This is in contrast to general reference maps, which regularly show the variety of phenomena — geological, geographical, political — together. The contrast between them lies in the fact that thematic maps use the base data, such as coastlines, boundaries and places, only as points of reference for the phenomenon being mapped. General maps portray the base data, such as landforms, lines of transportation, settlements, and political boundaries, for their own sake.
