9 Magazines in the geomatic environment

The way things are communicated has changed a lot with the evolution of Knowledge Management Systems. Fossil Talking about magazines today is not the same as 25 years ago, the variety of formats has given greater richness and each day the printed or static versions are abandoned by learning communities.
