Refined interactive maps are more and more used to discover details - guiding us via facts landscapes to supply info and recommended perception and knowing. Geovisualization is an rising area that attracts upon disciplines comparable to machine technology, human-computer interplay layout, cognitive sciences, graphical records, info visualization, info visualization, geographic details technology and cartography to debate, advance and evaluation interactive cartography.

This evaluate and exploration of the present and destiny prestige of geovisualization has been produced by means of key researchers and practitioners from worldwide in a number of cognate fields of research. The thirty-six chapters current summaries of labor undertaken, case stories excited by new tools and their program, procedure descriptions, exams in their implementation, plans for collaboration and reflections on studies of utilizing and constructing geovisualization techniques.

In overall, over 50 pages of colour are supplied within the e-book besides greater than 250 colour photographs on an enclosed CD-ROM.

Описание: В 1966 году в Национальной библиотеке в Мадриде были обнаружены два манускрипта, написанные Леонардо. Когда-то они не были учтены при каталогизации, и об их существовании не было известно. Этим двум манускриптам дали условные названия «Мадридский кодекс I» и «Мадридский кодекс II».
«Мадридский кодекс I» состоит из 192 листов 1490—1499 годов написания, содержащих изображения различных механизмов и изложения теории механики. Хотя работа и посвящена механике, в ней есть заметки по астрономии и по оптике.
«Мадридский кодекс II» был создан Леонардо в 1503—1505 гг. и состоит из 158 листов. Он собрал исследования в области геометрии, такие, например, как «квадратуры круга». Кроме этого, в нём содержатся работы по перспективе и оптике. В книге можно найти эскизы морских и топографических карт, рассматриваются проблемы военной техники и архитектуры. Самое интересное в этом кодексе — неосуществлённый проект изменения русла реки Арно, эскизы фрески «Битва при Ангиари» и конного памятника Франческо Сфорца.

Example text

Then, Robert Edsall and Laura Sidney describe approaches for representing interactions with time in tools for geovisualization. Cognitive science and usability engineering are employed to inform the development of a framework that helps cartographers design appropriate geovisualization interfaces and environments to support insight. Next, Sven Fuhrmann and William Pike aim to engage users in geovisualization tool design and evaluation when considering the user-centered design process for collaborative tools that support interaction.

Participants were arranged into groups by the organizers in advance of the meeting according to the self-selected areas of expertise, the nature of the papers submitted and through a process of discussion with those involved. The key objectives of the groups were to provide a mixture of backgrounds and areas of expertise but a common focus through which cross-disciplinary perspectives on particular pertinent topics could be addressed. At the workshop, the groups and their foci were discussed and consensus reached on four broad topics around which to structure the discussion through which geovisualization should be explored: 9 9 9 9 creating instruments for ideation; using 3D in visualization; connecting people data and resources; making useful and usable geovisualization.

The links between geovisualization 12 J. M. -J. Kraak and Information Visualization dominate, which is unsurprising as the majority of contributors regarded "Information Visualization" as being a primary or secondary area of expertise. Three additional authors (not in attendance at the workshop) were invited to produce chapters for consideration in this book that discuss geovisualization at a general level from key perspectives, specifically those of GIScience, Information Visualization (InfoVis), and human computer interaction design (HCID).
