#### Abstract

The purpose of this engineering thesis is to create a thematic map promoting rural commune on example of Cegłów. The research is divided into theoretical and practical part. Theoretical part includes basic issues related to the promotion of rural communes, data sources to create thematic maps and characteristics of the commune, including administrative, natural, historical, demographic, spatial and planning conditions. This section also discusses issues related to the editorial of thematic maps, including the geographical background and thematic content. The practical section describes the methodology of creating the background and thematic content for a map promoting the commune of Cegłów. The map was created using the ArcGIS software. The map was made based on data from The National Database of Topographic Objects (BDOT), vector data received from the commune’s office and relevant laws and literature. The basic activities carried out in the practical part included an area inventory, selection and generalization of data from BDOT, consultation with the mayor of the commune of Cegłów and the input of vector data received from the commune's office. The project contains of a map of the commune of Cegłów in the scale of 1:25 000, a map of Cegłów and Kiczki in the scales of 1:5000 and two maps showing the location of the commune in relation to the country and the district. After the analysis of the commune’s resources, the conclusion was that its promotion will be mainly related with attracting tourists, due to the valuable natural values and the richness of cultural heritage. For this reason, the content of the map consists of data on tourist infrastructure and the other data, including topographical and supporting data, which are not tourist facilities in themselves, but are relevant to the tourist. An important stage of creating a promoting map for the commune of Cegłów was the consultation with the mayor of the commune. This consultation showed that the commune authorities had a different view of promotion in relation to the designers’ vision. The designers’ vision was based primarily on showing tourist attractions, while the commune authorities wanted to place on the map all the information proving the development of the area, such as a special economic zone or technical infrastructure facilities. Thanks to this operation, map for promotional purposes of the commune will be aimed at attracting not only tourist, but also investors. During the working on the map, there were complications related to inconsistency of the data received from the commune’s office in relation to the data from BDOT, therefore it was necessary to update them. The map is designed for a wide range of recipients, therefore its readability and aesthetic composition, which consists of the presentation of data on the map, layout and graphic design, is very important. Symbols were composed in such a way that they best reflect the characteristics of the objects and were easy to associate for the recipient. Legend of the map is divided into categories enabling easy understanding and reading of the map content. In addition, the reverse of the map contains information the area, including a brief description of the commune and description of monuments and photos. The purpose of the map is to increase the interest of the area by people outside, which is supposed to contribute to its development.
