6604.1 - Alternative Transitions Between Existing Representations in Multi-Scale Maps

Location: Virginia B

Map users may be disturbed while zooming in a multi-scale map, as cartographic objects may have various representations across scales. We assume that adding intermediate representations could be one way to reduce the differences between existing representations, and to ease the transitions across scales. We consider an existing multi-scale map on the scale range from 1:25k to 1:100k scales. Formulating hypotheses about intermediate representations design, we build custom multi-scale maps with alternative transitions. We will conduct in a next future a user evaluation to compare the efficiency of these alternatives for multi-scale navigation. This paper discusses the hypotheses and production process of these alternatives.

Marion Dumont is a PhD student at the LASTIG COGIT team, IGN France (the French Mapping Agency). Her research topic deals with cartographic generalisation. She proposes to address the issues of smooth zooming in existing multi-scale maps by adding consistent intermediate representations. Her PhD is part of the MapMuxing research project.
