The quick trade of data and data are the basic stipulations for profitable and potent study and functional functions in cartography. For winning examine improvement, it is important to persist with tendencies not just during this area, but additionally attempt to adapt new developments and applied sciences from different parts. traits in cartography also are commonly themes of many meetings that have the most target to hyperlink learn, schooling and alertness specialists in cartography and GIS&T into one huge platform. Such the precise position for alternate and sharing of data and talents used to be additionally the CARTOCON2014 convention, which happened in Olomouc, Czech Republic, in February 2014 and this e-book is a compilation of the easiest and finest contributions.

The e-book content material comprises 4 components. the 1st half New methods in map and atlas making collects reviews approximately leading edge methods in map creation and atlases compilation. Following a part of the ebook Progress in internet cartography brings examples and instruments for internet map presentation. The 3rd part complicated equipment in map use contains fulfillment of eye-tracking study and clients’ concerns. the ultimate half Cartography in perform and research is a transparent proof that cartography and maps performed the numerous function in lots of geosciences and in lots of branches of the society. every one person paper is unique and has its position in cartography.

18 D. Fairbairn Data Processing The DSM was examined using a range of software, in order to prepare and modify the data, and analyse its properties. A primary parameter which can be obtained from the surface model is a slope map, which can visually be used to detect zones of differing levels of dissection. The slope map for the relevant zones is shown in Fig. 1b. As can be seen, the zone of sandstone (Zone A), which has been subject to less mining activity and spoil heap creation, has fewer steep areas and a more uniform surface.

There are available time and money to compile the atlas The above mentioned prerequisites have to be preserved throughout the compilation process of the atlas, i. e. from the planning stage to the distribution stage of the atlas, which might last 2 years, but even 7 years. ), the cost of data sources (purchase of existing data, conversion of existing data, acquisition of new data) and the cost on the production of the atlas (the atlas book—typographical, printing and bookbinding, the digital atlas— storage, security, availability, transmission rate) (Fig.

Org/. org/. html. 3 The Next Generation of Atlas User Interfaces. . 22) Layout 4 was also most efficient in terms of required time (Table 1). On average, tasks could be solved twice as fast with Layout 4 as with Layout 2. Since some tasks involved more consecutive actions than others, the number of clicks was normalized for a meaningful comparison by the number of screen changes. , the number of screen changes) for Layout 1. The normalized number of clicks is considered as a measure for efficiency, as it indicates the participants’ effort (Tamir et al.
