The landscape representation is a complex process based on the acquisition of a whole range of aspects ofperceptible reality and their transposition by significant graphic signs. This process can be considered as agraphic system of transcription, logically ordered that, by means and methods diversified, becomes a form ofcommunication essentially visual and universally recognizable.The impossibility to always use accurate mathematical projections as well as the need to expresscircumstances and peculiar properties of natural or anthropogenic elements - in fact independent of theprojections - raises the problem of appeal to a class of conventional signs. In this domain of the sign,functions, syntax, meaning and practice are delegated almost completely to the designer who has to face achallenge epistemological and interpretative.The management of complexity through the use of new media makes it possible today the renewed design ofperceptive-spatial codes, able to make tangible the knowledge of the territory through signs that although agraphics reduction refer to broader meanings. As to say less is more. In light of these considerations, thepaper tries to establish itself as a moment of reflection and synthesis of research activity still underdevelopment, aimed at testing visual-graphic signs and forms that explain a communicative functionstraddling the traditional themes of mapping and the innovative approach offered by the graphic-design.
