Description

A thematic map is a map that illustrates more than simply geographical relationships or locations, but rather also portrays themes, patterns, or data relating to physical, social, medical, economic, political or any other aspect of a region or location. Examples include maps that show variations of population density, climate data, wealth, voting intentions, or life expectancy with geographical location. These tools have become central to the work of scientists, practitioners, and students in nearly every field, from epidemiology to political science, and are familiar to members of the public as a common means of expressing complicated and multivariate information in easily understood graphical formats.
This set of three volumes on Thematic Cartography considers maps as information constructs resulting from a number of successive information transformations and the products of decision stages, integrated into a logical reasoning and the order of those choices. It thereby provides a thorough understanding of the theoretical basis for thematic mapping, as well as the means of applying the various techniques and methodologies in order to create a desired analytical presentation.
This third volume is exclusively focused on new approaches in thematic cartography offered by three successive revolutions affecting the discipline: digital, multimedia and Internet phenomena. It discusses transformations related to modern technologies (animation, interactivity, multimedia, etc.) leading to geovisualization and solutions to spatio-temporal data cartography.

Contents

1. Technological Revolutions and Their Conceptual and Practical Consequences.
2. Towards a Spatio-Temporal Representation of Cartographic Objects
3. Thematic Cartography within the Framework of New Paradigms
