AbstractTheory and mathematical basics of the cartographic visualisation of attributed geo-objects for static and interactive maps (with exercises).
ObjectiveThe course offers first computer graphics and mathematical basics and concepts of cartography. The accompanying exercises introduce further cartographic and GIS software, programming libraries for cartographic visualisation purposes. It is shown how web browsers, text editors and scripting languages can be used to develop efficient tools for cartographic data processing, design, and visualisation.
Content- Cartographic workflow, data types, data capturing, data sources and legal aspects.
- Introduction to QGIS, ArcGIS and OCAD for cartographic applications.
- Data types: Analytical and visualisation processes in cartography.
- Colour management and pre-press processes.
- Web maps using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SVG and Canvas 2D.
- Interaction with diagrams and maps.
- Libraries and APIs for cartographic applications.
Lecture notesWill be distributed module by module
Literature- References and other materials will be distributed by the supervisors.
- Students are requested to contact the supervisors in advance for detailed instructions.
