By Antoni Moore, Igor Drecki

The booklet contains a collection of chapters in relation to study awarded on the 4th nationwide Cartographic convention GeoCart'2008, which was once held in Auckland, New Zealand on September 1st to third, 2008. The convention is counseled by way of the overseas Cartographic organization (ICA). The booklet can provide a consultant, precious and well timed collection of innovative learn within the fields of cartography and geovisualisation, with contributions from top researchers all over the world. each one bankruptcy has been reviewed by way of 3 foreign specialists. The e-book comprises sections on illustration, selfish Cartography, Geovisual Exploration of Uncertainty and Terrain, and net Mapping. The accompanying CD comprises color maps, animation and interfaces.

Hurni functions can also be implemented for other examples. Depending on the aims of the developers, of the target groups, and also taking into account the current availability of data to be visualised, alternative groupings can make sense. For instance if an atlas focuses on functions for data analysis, an individual “Power Tool” could be developed. In such a tool, the functions which are suitable for data analysis could be merged (like “modification of classification”, “modification of symbolisation” and “access to statistical table data”).

In this way, as long as no layer is selected, all the available functions are dimmed – which means inactive. As soon as the user selects one layer, the system checks which one has been selected and it automatically offers all applicable functions, depending on the selection. At the same time, the current graphical attributes of the layer objects are exported and set accordingly within the adaptation tools of the legend. In the test, such extended system-oriented functions were considered to be very helpful by the subjects.

The beacons had to closely resemble reality so the cognitive association can be made between the real beacons and the virtual beacons. However, the 3D beacon symbology also had to be conveyed in such a way that the beacon would be clearly identified and associated with the real world beacon as well as with the symbol on the chart NZ 6612. The real and symbolised objects were quite different, making it difficult to design a 3D symbol that resembled both. The decision was made to closely copy reality as a starting point, so all the associations between the real world and the model can be A User-defined Virtual Reality Chart for Hydrographic Surveying 37 made by the mariner (in this way the mariners’ feedback aligned with the aims of the research group in developing a 3D application).
