Labeling[ edit ] To communicate spatial information effectively, features such as rivers, lakes, and cities need to be labeled.

Over centuries cartographers have developed the art of placing names on even the densest of maps. Text placement or name placement can get mathematically very complex as the number of labels and map density increases. Therefore, text placement is time-consuming and labor-intensive, so cartographers and GIS users have developed automatic label placement to ease this process.

From the last quarter of the 20th century, the indispensable tool of the cartographer has been the computer. Much of cartography, especially at the data-gathering survey level, has been subsumed by Geographic Information Systems GIS. The functionality of maps has been greatly advanced by technology simplifying the superimposition of spatially located variables onto existing geographical maps.

Interactive, computerised maps are commercially available, allowing users to zoom in or zoom out respectively meaning to increase or decrease the scale , sometimes by replacing one map with another of different scale, centered where possible on the same point.

In-car global navigation satellite systems are computerised maps with route-planning and advice facilities which monitor the user's position with the help of satellites. From the computer scientist's point of view, zooming in entails one or a combination of: replacing the map by a more detailed one enlarging the same map without enlarging the pixels , hence showing more detail by removing less information compared to the less detailed version enlarging the same map with the pixels enlarged replaced by rectangles of pixels ; no additional detail is shown, but, depending on the quality of one's vision, possibly more detail can be seen; if a computer display does not show adjacent pixels really separate, but overlapping instead this does not apply for an LCD , but may apply for a cathode ray tube , then replacing a pixel by a rectangle of pixels does show more detail.

A variation of this method is interpolation. A world map in PDF format. The increase in detail is limited to the information contained in the file: enlargement of a curve may eventually result in a series of standard geometric figures such as straight lines, arcs of circles or splines.

Text is not necessarily enlarged when zooming in. Similarly, a road represented by a double line may or may not become wider when one zooms in. The map may also have layers which are partly raster graphics and partly vector graphics.

For a single raster graphics image 2 applies until the pixels in the image file correspond to the pixels of the display, thereafter 3 applies. Climatic maps[ edit ] The maps that reflect the territorial distribution of climatic conditions based on the results of long-term observations are called climatic maps.

These maps can be compiled both for individual climatic features temperature, precipitation, humidity and for combinations of them at the earth's surface and in the upper layers of the atmosphere. Climatic maps afford a very convenient overview of the climatic features in a large region and permit values of climatic features to be compared in different parts of the region.

Through interpolation the maps can be used to determine the values of climatic features in any particular spot. Climatic maps generally apply to individual months and to the year as a whole, sometimes to the four seasons, to the growing period, and so forth.

On maps compiled from the observations of ground meteorological stations, atmospheric pressure is converted to sea level. Air temperature maps are compiled both from the actual values observed on the surface of the earth and from values converted to sea level.

The pressure field in free atmosphere is represented either by maps of the distribution of pressure at different standard altitudes—for example, at every kilometer above sea level—or by maps of baric topography on which altitudes more precisely geopotentials of the main isobaric surfaces for example, , , and millibars counted off from sea level are plotted.

The temperature, humidity, and wind on aeroclimatic maps may apply either to standard altitudes or to the main isobaric surfaces. Isolines are drawn on maps of such climatic features as the long-term mean values of atmospheric pressure, temperature, humidity, total precipitation, and so forth to connect points with equal values of the feature in question—for example, isobars for pressure, isotherms for temperature, and isohyets for precipitation.

Isoamplitudes are drawn on maps of amplitudes for example, annual amplitudes of air temperature—that is, the differences between the mean temperatures of the warmest and coldest month. Isanomals are drawn on maps of anomalies for example, deviations of the mean temperature of each place from the mean temperature of the entire latitudinal zone.

Isolines of frequency are drawn on maps showing the frequency of a particular phenomenon for example, annual number of days with a thunderstorm or snow cover.

Types of Maps: Topographic, Political, Climate, and More

Isochrones are drawn on maps showing the dates of onset of a given phenomenon for example, the first frost and appearance or disappearance of the snow cover or the date of a particular value of a meteorological element in the course of a year for example, passing of the mean daily air temperature through zero.

Isolines of the mean numerical value of wind velocity or isotachs are drawn on wind maps charts ; the wind resultants and directions of prevailing winds are indicated by arrows of different length or arrows with different plumes; lines of flow are often drawn. Maps of the zonal and meridional components of wind are frequently compiled for the free atmosphere. Atmospheric pressure and wind are usually combined on climatic maps. Wind roses, curves showing the distribution of other meteorological elements, diagrams of the annual course of elements at individual stations, and the like are also plotted on climatic maps.

Maps of climatic regionalization, that is, division of the earth's surface into climatic zones and regions according to some classification of climates, are a special kind of climatic map.

Climatic maps are often incorporated into climatic atlases of varying geographic range globe, hemispheres, continents, countries, oceans or included in comprehensive atlases.

Besides general climatic maps, applied climatic maps and atlases have great practical value.

Aeroclimatic maps, aeroclimatic atlases, and agroclimatic maps are the most numerous. Non-geographical spatial maps[ edit ] Maps exist of the Solar System , and other cosmological features such as star maps. In addition maps of other bodies such as the Moon and other planets are technically not geo graphical maps.

Topological maps[ edit ] In a topological map , like this one showing inventory locations, the distances between locations is not important. Only the layout and connectivity between them matters.

Diagrams such as schematic diagrams and Gantt charts and treemaps display logical relationships between items, rather than geographical relationships. Topological in nature, only the connectivity is significant. The London Underground map and similar subway maps around the world are a common example of these maps. At the scope of a world map, scale as a single number is practically meaningless throughout most of the map.

Instead, it usually refers to the scale along the equator. Cartogram: The EU distorted to show population distributions as of Some maps, called cartograms , have the scale deliberately distorted to reflect information other than land area or distance.

For example, this map at the right of Europe has been distorted to show population distribution, while the rough shape of the continent is still discernible. Another example of distorted scale is the famous London Underground map. The basic geographical structure is respected but the tube lines and the River Thames are smoothed to clarify the relationships between stations. Near the center of the map stations are spaced out more than near the edges of map.

Further inaccuracies may be deliberate. For example, cartographers may simply omit military installations or remove features solely in order to enhance the clarity of the map.

For example, a road map may not show railroads, smaller waterways or other prominent non-road objects, and even if it does, it may show them less clearly e. Known as decluttering, the practice makes the subject matter that the user is interested in easier to read, usually without sacrificing overall accuracy. In AUTO the degree of decluttering is adjusted as the user changes the scale being displayed. Main article: Map projection Geographic maps use a projection to translating the three-dimensional real surface of the geoid to a two-dimensional picture.

Projection always distorts the surface.

There are many ways to apportion the distortion, and so there are many map projections. Which projection to use depends on the purpose of the map.

Symbology[ edit ] The various features shown on a map are represented by conventional signs or symbols. For example, colors can be used to indicate a classification of roads. Those signs are usually explained in the margin of the map, or on a separately published characteristic sheet. These cartographers typically place such information in an otherwise "blank" region "inside" the map— cartouche , map legend , title, compass rose , bar scale , etc.

In particular, some maps contain smaller "sub-maps" in otherwise blank regions—often one at a much smaller scale showing the whole globe and where the whole map fits on that globe, and a few showing "regions of interest" at a larger scale in order to show details that wouldn't otherwise fit. Occasionally sub-maps use the same scale as the large map—a few maps of the contiguous United States include a sub-map to the same scale for each of the two non-contiguous states.
