Industry has a long tradition in the Province of Styria, why, according to the public perception, it is often represented as country of industry. It is obvious that industry is forming the identity, but is it possible to verify that with hard data?The first part of the masters thesis deals with whether Styria, in comparison with other provinces in Austria, is an industrialised country or not. Within this first part the term „industry“ is described, statistical key figures are elaborated and a historical overview is given. Furthermore, Styrian industrial areas together with existing clusters are introduced and delineated. A theoretical introduction is followed by a practical part.This masters thesis is written in cooperation with the „Schulatlas Steiermark“ project (www.schulatlas.at), which means that an essential chapter of this work is a comprehensive cartographic illustration of Styrian industry. For that purpose nineteen maps were produced, which help educators as extended teaching materials. Beside industrial sites, different industry branches, number of employed and company sales are visualised. The localisation quotient was calculated to identifyr communities where the second sector plays an important role. The different maps were worked out by using the „Schulatlas“ layout and will be available on the project homepage in the near future. Apart from classical cartographic visualisations, heat and anamorphic maps are created. All used data originated from the “Industrievereinigung Steiermark“ or alternatively from the “Wirtschaftskammer Steiermark“, the “Landesstatistik Steiermark“ as well as from the journal „Top of Styria“ and “Joanneum Research”.Concluding with a discussion of the produced maps, the used software, structure and design and a critical reflection of the contents is made.
