Buchbeschreibung Springer Berlin Heidelberg Aug 2013, 2013. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - The International Cartographic Association (ICA) was founded in 1959 and organises biannual conferences, which usually attract more than 1000 attendees. No other publication or scientific series gives readers an equally comprehensive overview of the latest cartographic research and activities than the proceedings of these conferences. This book, which collects these proceedings, spans the whole scientific discipline, from questions of appropriate geo-data sources to various forms of processing geo-data, to an appropriate cartographic design and answers related to the user interaction with and perception of cartographic products. Moreover, the centuries-long tradition of cartography and its technical and design-related developments are reflected in various contributions. Cartography topics are highly relevant to society far beyond the academic world, as modern technologies generate an already vast and steadily increasing amount of geo-related data. Only a sensible and professional way of presenting these precious resources by using the expertise of cartographers will allow us to transform loads of data into useful and beneficial information. 516 pp. Englisch.
