  • A checklist to evaluate mapping software
  • Cartographic design ; Computer-assisted mapping;Automatic cartography ; Graphics ; Mapping technique
  • Provides a checklist that breaks down software features into such categories as range of map types, evaluation of the program, map design, flexibility and choropleth classification. - (DWG)
  • Cartography ; Communication ; Concept ; Map ; Map design
  • L'A. donne un aperçu sur les concepts de map design et de visualisation scientifique, géographique et cartographique des cartes. - (IfL)
  • On geomorphological classification and legend design in mapping 1: 1 000 000 map of Xining Sheet.
  • The design principles and representation of legends in the geomorphological map is discussed. All land-forms of neotechtonic origin, fundamental exogenic morpho-genetic classes and special forms should be fully reflected. The first level basic
  • and a generalized map specimen illustrate the classification scheme. (TNC).
  • Computer software for displaying map projections and comparing distortions
  • Cartographic design ; Computer-assisted mapping;Automatic cartography ; Map projection ; Pedagogy ; Teaching of geography
  • Pedagogical essay on the distortion inherent in map projections that can be undestood by use of software programs for personal computers. - (DWG)
  • Designs of medium scale hazard maps of mountain slopes in Japan
  • Applied geomorphology ; Automated mapping ; Japan ; Landslide ; Mountain ; Natural hazards ; Slope dynamics ; Slope gradient ; Thematic mapping
  • Recently two types of mapping methods are being used for the more usefulness. One is the mapping of the slope gradient unit and the other is the mapping of the morph-genetic unit. The A. discusses on the problem of the smallest size of mapping unit
  • Through delinguization to expressivistic conception of map
  • Cartographic symbol ; Cartographic technique ; Cartographical display ; Language ; Map design
  • An effort to find out about the reasons, a mental experiment with delinguization of map language based on delimitation of four language levels and subdivision of map sign into morphemes and graphemes is demonstrated. - (MS)
  • A program of research to aid Cartographic design
  • designers by providing information about reactions on the part of persons other than the designers themselves. The field of cartography should be the primary source for data on how to use marks on maps.
  • A possible task for the ICA Commission on Cartographic Communication would be to initiate and support practical programs of research that would help provide better understanding of visual characteristics of map symbols. Such research would aid
  • Atlas ; Automated mapping ; China ; Internet ; Map ; Multimedia ; Years 1990-99
  • mapping with products of multimedia cartographic maps; New era (>2001), web mapping and adaptative map design.
  • issues. The 4 periods are highlighted : Infant period (
  • Notes on recent large-scale urban maps in Japan
  • and atlases. They give a reminiscence of the urban picture maps designed as guide maps during the end of the Tokugawa feudal period (mid-nineteenth century). - (SGA)
  • Nowadays the Geographical Survey Institute is in Japan the most important organism for making scientific, systematic and accurate urban maps. To meet demands for much more detailed, updated town information, private companies publish urban maps
  • An integrated approach to map design and production
  • Creative, productive human activity is often associated with a melding of rational-analytical thinking and intuitive-halistic thought. In this paper the common sense basis of map design and production is related to the integration of these two
  • Soil map legends as tools of cartographic communication
  • Cartographic symbol ; Cartography ; Concept ; Geographical information system ; Land use ; Methodology ; Soil ; Soil map ; Soil properties
  • This paper reports on one series of experiments to evaluate how varying the symbolization of soils on maps and the concomitant legend design affect the map's readility.
  • Application of environmental learning theory to spatial knowledge acquisition from maps
  • Behaviour ; Cognitive process ; Distance ; Geographical information ; Mental map ; Perception ; Place ; Spatial representation
  • This study is designed to determine the applicability of a developmental theory of environmental knowledge acquisition to learning from maps. The A. describes an experiment in which map presentation strategies incorporating segmentation are compared
  • Critiquing and redrawing maps : techniques to enhance cartographic knowledge
  • Explanation of a practical test of the student's ability to recognize and reduce design flaws by analyzing published maps. - (DWG)
  • The role of projections in modern map design
  • Design strategies for continuous-tone area mapping
  • Perception and maps: human factors in map design and interpretation
  • Landschaftsokologische Karten für künftige Stadtentwicklung Landscape-ecological maps for future regional planning
  • The user orientated urban thematic maps serve for inventory surveys of urban landscape areas, their evaluation, documentation and for the representation of urban-ecological suggestions concerning planning. Some map designs are iteratively tested
  • in their inability to compose maps and use that tool to express themselves. Cartographers, on the other hand, elaborate on map production techniques, including drawing, printing, design, and analysis, but their work is handicapped by insufficient knowledge
  • Maps have traditionally been a tool of geography but since the end of the 19th century geographical studies and cartography have developed along divergent paths. Over-reliance of geographers on cartographers to produce maps results
  • The function of the map is the main determinant of map design. With example of the problem of the distribution of stations of production forces the author illustrated a problem-specific determination of the function of thematic maps and the co
  • -ordination of design principles. (HL).
  • Derivation from the relations between concept and designation and the possibilities to designate a map type, some names of a map type are critically considered. The author preachs for the term map of landscape research . - (IH)
