This sequence in 3 volumes considers maps as buildings as a result of a few successive differences and phases built-in in a logical reasoning and an order of selections. Volume 2 makes a speciality of the influence of the quantitative revolution, in part relating to the arrival of the pc age, on thematic cartography.

New PDF release: Geographies of Mobilities: Practices, Spaces, Subjects

During the last fifteen years or so, there was a common and extending fascination with the subject matter of mobility around the social sciences and arts. after all, geographers have continuously had an curiosity in mobility, yet as but they've got now not considered this within the related 'mobility turn' as in different disciplines the place it's been used to critique the traditional ways to the themes.

In Geography and GIS, surfaces might be analysed and visualised via numerous facts constructions, and topological info buildings describe surfaces within the type of a dating among convinced surface-specific positive factors. Drawn from many disciplines with a powerful utilized point, it is a research-led, interdisciplinary method of the production, research and visualisation of surfaces, focussing on topological facts buildings.

It has brought about a revitalization of the attribute processing phase within the cartographic process. Chapter 1 From the Description to the Generalization of an Attribute Variable Z A thematic variable [Z] can be represented on a spatial support [XY] in various ways and with various visual results, depending on the processing to which the variable is exposed, especially if it is a quantitative variable. The cartographer may decide to generalize the map excessively and, for example, only distinguish the values of Z above and below the mean.

21. Relationship between the number of classes and the intra- and inter-class variances Suppose we want to find the values of a variable which correspond to the class limits associated with the normal distribution and with the probability p. We can use the normal distribution table (Appendix 1) and read from its sides the values associated with the probability p shown within the table. In the case of the population density in Luxembourg we know the probabilities and look for the corresponding values: we therefore start from the numbers within the table and find the boundary values on the table margins.

It is also possible to apply statistical formulas to find the median value, the quartiles, the quintiles, the deciles or the centiles to divide the data into two, four, five, ten or a hundred sets of equal frequency, respectively. This means that we are no longer interested in the values themselves, but only in their ranking in the ordered data set, in an increasing or a decreasing order. As mentioned above, this method accepts well-defined numbers of classes which have a statistical meaning related to dispersion.
